LRQA in the Food sector
Over half the world's top consumer food companies choose LRQA for their assurance and certification needs.
More than just a bad reputation, food safety incidents can result in death or illness, costly recalls, bad press, decreased consumer confidence and damaged brand value. With an increase in globalization of supplies, the likelihood of these risks grows and the processes to manage them effectively become more complex, especially as levels of food safety vary from country to country.
This is why having the right food safety management program in place – verified by a reputable, trusted body with a global footprint – is more critical now than ever to help manage food safety and security risks along the supply chain, and ultimately, help protect your consumers and your brand.
