Food Safety Standards and Legislation

This white paper looks at the most common food safety standards and their latest requirements. It also explains how implementation of a product inspection program can help food manufacturers meet these requirements in order to achieve compliance.

In addition to existing quality standards such as ISO9001, Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP), it is becoming increasingly important for manufacturers to hold food safety certification to ensure the highest level of food safety in a more globalized economy.

The white paper focuses on the following subjects:

  • The food safety legislation and standards landscape
  • How product inspection aids compliance with food safety standards in the following areas
    • Traceability
    • Quality and quantity control
    • Foreign body detection
    • Hygienically-designed equipment
    • Equipment calibration

Food safety is an increasing concern and affects consumers and businesses globally. While much of the world's food supply is safe, high profile safety scares and product recalls highlight the potential danger of foodborne threats. According to the World Health Organisation's (WHO) estimation from 2015, 600 million people, or almost 1 in 10 of the world’s population fall ill after consuming contaminated food every.

As demand for food safety escalates, holding a recognized food safety certification has become increasingly important in helping manufacturers provide reassurance that products coming off their production lines are as safe as possible for consumers. The inclusion of product inspection equipment into a company-wide product inspection program can play a critical role in helping manufacturers adhere to the rigors of industry standards.

Mettler Toledo Product Inspection solutions have been developed with FSMA regulations and GFSI-approved standards in mind and supply the documentation, monitoring and verification required to aid compliance.
