Major food retailers require food processors to certify their food-safety-management systems under Global Food Safety Initiative recognized audits. This has, in turn, led food processors to make additional demands of their supply chain, including packaging vendors, to demonstrate viable audited HACCP programs.
Meeting the customer’s food-safety-audit requirements gives packaging suppliers a competitive advantage and unique market opportunity.
