Food Safety Management

Providing trust in the safety of your supply chain

Food safety certification and compliance

Food Safety Certification

Food is a fundamental requirement in daily life. Consumers expect that the food they are consuming is safe and free from contamination. Significant implications on human health, consumer confidence, reputation and bottom line of organisations means food safety assurance must be at the top of the list for risk management and strategic operations for any business in the food supply chain industry. PwC’s Certification and Compliance have a globally-proven framework and methodology to help in your business maintain food trust in the market.

Responding to Food Safety challenges

The food industry has never faced more challenges. Enhancing trust in food is a growing concern in a climate where public confidence in producers, processes and sellers – even government regulators – has been rocked by many high-profile scandals.

Depending on their production, position within the food supply chain, or distribution and retail pathway, we can assist organisations in providing assurance over their operations - helping demonstrate their commitment to food safety and provide confidence to consumers.

Food Safety Culture Assessments

Food Safety Culture is the shared values, beliefs and norms that affect mind set and behaviour towards food safety throughout an organisation.

Our Food Safety Culture Assessment provides clear insight on the maturity level of an organisation's food safety culture taking into consideration multiple dimensions about how people feel, think and act towards food safety and the impact it can have on the production of safe food. Our Food Safety Culture Assessment validates and provides a benchmark for an organisation's food safety culture and how they can review and improve upon their food safety management systems.
