Why has Freshcare updated the Standard to FSQ4.2?

Published on November 24, 2020

In 2019, Freshcare was benchmarked against the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), to ensure ongoing domestic and global market acceptance of the Freshcare Standards.

The Global Food Safety Initiative released GFSI v2020 benchmark criteria in February 2020 and set a maximum period of time that Certification Program Owners (such as Freshcare) had to update the Standard and supporting program.

The Freshcare Food Safety & Quality Standard has therefore been updated to FSQ4.2 to ensure Freshcare certification remains compliant with the GFSI requirements.
