Ensuring Quality And Safety In Food Supply Chains

Ensuring Quality And Safety In Food Supply Chains – New 'ISO & Food' Standards Brochure

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has published a new brochure, ISO & food – Quality and safety from farm to fork, that provides a concise overview of the Standards available to ensure quality and safety in the food industry. The brochure highlights the benefits of ISO Standards for industry, regulators, and consumers.

Out of over 19 000 ISO Standards, some 1000 are dedicated to food and cover subjects as diverse as agricultural machinery, logistics, transportation, manufacturing, labelling, packaging, and storage. These Standards provide benefits for all participants in the supply chain, from farm to transportation and logistics, from manufacturing to retailing and services, from consumers to regulators and analytical laboratories.

About Standards New Zealand

Standards New Zealand is the operating arm of the Standards Council, and part of New Zealand's standards and conformance infrastructure. Standards New Zealand is an autonomous Crown entity responsible for managing the development and distribution of Standards across a range of sectors nationally.

Standards New Zealand is a self-funded, not-for-profit organisation, relying on revenue primarily from contracts with sponsors to develop Standards, and from sales of Standards publications. Our independence helps us facilitate a cross section of stakeholders' contributions to the development of Standards, and ensure that each Standard meets the needs of end users.

The question is not what you gain from standardisation, it's what you lose without it.
