Food Safety & Quality

Tomorrow's food safety standards today, applied globally

Effective Food Safety & Quality Assurance (FSQA) management systems are about more than ticking items off of checklists. They’re about developing food safety culture.

Instilling risk-based analytical thinking in each factory enriches our value chain by preparing suppliers to address today’s challenges and tomorrow’s risks.

And it takes a team of technical experts to mentor food manufacturers and monitor food safety and quality systems regularly at supplier factories and farms.

Approving suppliers confidently

In a perfect world, customers could rest assured that their sourcing needs would automatically fit their Approved Supplier Process. But in reality, even the most confident suppliers win with a farm-to-fork FSQA partner that:

  • Visits supplier fields and factories and conducts food safety audits
  • Supports suppliers on-site in building knowledge and next generation risk management systems
  • Comprehensively develops new suppliers to meet national and international food laws and unique client requirements

Audits that build

GFSI gives you confidence that your supplier safety systems are on the right track. The Marcatus FSQA Audit builds on this foundation by giving suppliers the skills to develop and internalize food safety. When suppliers understand each requirement, they are better equipped to manage risks as they arise.

  • BRC
  • SQF
  • IFS
