The Real Impact of Food Safety Certifications

A new global survey by NSF reveals how food safety certifications are making supply chains more manageable and more sustainable.

Building a thriving business in the food industry has become more challenging in the past few years. Geopolitical conflicts, labour issues, and the effects of climate change are disrupting the supply chain; at the same time, higher consumer expectations and more stringent regulations are raising the bar of quality and sustainability standards. Amidst all this, food companies must gauge risks and challenges while keeping food safety a priority, often with limited resources.

In this report for industry professionals, Five Ways Food Safety Drives Success, NSF draws a detailed picture of this complex scenario, using data from a global survey of more than 1,000 food businesses globally. Questionnaires covered a range of food safety issues, from managing supply chain visibility to dealing with cross-contamination.

The responses provide an in-depth view of the challenges that food companies worldwide are facing, often with significant differences between regions. What survey data also reveals is that there has never been a better time for food safety professionals to make a difference in their organisations in areas beyond product quality and safety, such as sustainability, business growth, collaboration, and consumer trust.

The world presents huge opportunities for food safety professionals. The momentum for creating more sustainable, digitised supply chain ecosystems is growing, as is the demand for nutritious, accessible food worldwide
