What are the changes to Freshcare for GFSI benchmarking?
The Freshcare Food Safety & Quality Standards are required to be updated to align with the release of new benchmark criteria as set by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).
Freshcare communicates updates to the Food Safety & Quality Standards directly with participating businesses and stakeholders.
Information on the Freshcare Standards can be found here: www.freshcare.com.au/standards
The GFSI benchmark process also means changes for our certification bodies in areas such as auditor competency, audit scheduling and management of corrective actions.
The Freshcare office has also been required to update our internal management systems and operating procedures to meet GFSI requirements.
