What is GFSI?

GFSI: Safe Food for Consumers Everywhere

GFSI LogoThe increasing severity and frequency of food safety incidents across the globe has certainly tested consumer confidence in the food supply chain. How do producers, processors, distributors, and retailers – all those responsible for getting our food from farm to fork – maximize the safety of what consumers will find on their plate during a night out to eat or on store shelves while shopping at their local grocery store? In response to a number of food safety scares, a group of international retailers created the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) whose central vision has been “Safe Food for Consumers Everywhere.” GFSI, who now represents over 70% of food retail revenue worldwide, is committed to benchmarking food safety management schemes in order to enhance food safety and restore consumer confidence. Equally important, GFSI encourages common retailer acceptance of GFSI recognized standards in order to reduce excessive audit costs for suppliers.
