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.
