Global Food Safety Advisory Program

 

OUR APPROACH

 

Food safety affects everyone. Consumers demand and deserve safe, hygienically-produced food. For agribusinesses - from farmers and meat producers to bakers and bottlers - food safety must be a top priority. Slack standards jeopardize consumers’ health and can also cost businesses their reputations. For more than 15 years, IFC has offered high-quality professional services to help companies apply international food safety standards and adapt sustainable business models. IFC’s support includes food safety assessments, staff training, and guidance attaining international certification. Improved food safety is helping our clients meet regional and export market requirements, attract investment, realize cost savings, and strengthen their brands. The twin goals of IFC’s Food Safety Program are healthier balance sheets, and high-quality food on plates.

IFC’s Food Safety Advisory Program is funded by Japan, New Zealand, and Slovakia.
