WHAT’S NEW IN FOOD SAFETY THIS MONTH?

Food safety culture is the new buzzword in the industry; starting with BRCGS Food Version 8 coming up in February 2020, we expect to see more demand for the “shared values, beliefs and norms that affect mindset and behaviour toward food safety in, across and throughout an organization”, as the Global Food Safety Initiative*s (GFSI) technical working group defines it. To help organizations identify and develop their own food safety culture, GFSI has published a position paper regarding food safety culture that deals with three main topics:

  • The essential role of executives within an organization (a point that also plays a significant role in the revision of ISO 9001: 2015)
  • Factors such as communication, education, cooperation and personal responsibility
  • Skills such as adaptability or risk awareness to translate food safety practices from theory to practice

Here you can access the summary of the position paper. The full GFSI document “A Culture of Food Safety” is available for download here.

On August 1 BRCGS launched the Global Standard for Packaging Materials Issue 6 – and it is not just the name that was subject to a change. The new BRCGS Packaging Materials – Issue 6 includes six major changes: two key changes concerning the protocol and four key changes regarding the requirements of the former Packaging and Packaging materials – Issue 5 certification.

Changes to the Protocol:
1. Removing the second hygiene category
2. Removing second/split unannounced audit option

Changes to the Requirements:
1. Corrective and preventive action: fundamental clause
2. Emphasis on product quality
3. Product safety and quality culture
4. Pellet, flake and powder control in the plastic industry

After publication of the new version, on August 1, 2019, there is a transition period of six months. The use of Issue 6 is compulsory for all certification audits taking place from February 2020 onwards. Here you can read more about the changes and download the new standard.

Introducing the new BRCGS Ethical Trade and Responsible Sourcing Standard
In the consumer goods industry, BRCGS Global Standards is widely recognized as one of the leading certification scheme owners for product quality and safety. With the new Global Standard for Ethical Trade & Responsible Sourcing, BRCGS is taking its experience with scheme management into the area of responsible sourcing. In this article, we provide an overview of what to expect from the new scheme.

In other food safety news: FSSC 22000 Version 5 – Main Changes

On June 3, FSSC 22000 published Version 5 of its certification scheme. One big reason for the revision is the publication of the standard ISO 22000: 2018 last summer, which is used as a basis for the GFSI benchmarked certification scheme. The new version includes mainly structural changes that we will present in this article.

PLANT-BASED PRODUCTS – NEW BRCGS STANDARD UNDER DEVELOPMENT

PLANT-BASED PRODUCTS – NEW BRCGS STANDARD UNDER DEVELOPMENT When the Beyond Meat Burger was launched in Germany, the product was sold out within minutes.

The shift in consumer purchasing behaviour is a challenge for companies in terms of standardization, as plant-based products are relatively novel. A new BRCGS Standard shall help companies meet the consumer demands while also protecting
