Food certification

To compete in the global food and beverage industry, players must demonstrate that their products, processes and services meet the highest levels of safety, quality and responsibility, while keeping up with evolving trends and market demands. Whether you are a food manufacturer, processor, importer, supplier or retailer, stringent industry and regulatory standards, and complex, globalized supply chains are making this an increasingly challenging task.

Bureau Veritas provides a wide range of certification, auditing and assessment services, and digital solutions that enable you to achieve compliance, mitigate risk, improve sustainability performance and optimize efficiency along the entire supply chain.

Food safety
Regulators and consumers alike are demanding greater safety, quality and transparency from the food industry. Certification to food safety standards by Bureau Veritas enables you to meet this challenge and earn customers’ trust. Bureau Veritas’ food and animal feed safety certification offer covers a wide range of leading standards. These include ISO 22000 , FAMI-QS, GMP+ , GFSI-recognized standards  (e.g. FSSC 22000, BRC Global Standards, IFS Food and Logistics standards, GLOBALG.A.P.), and more.

Food product certification
Evolving market demands and regulatory frameworks are making it more critical than ever to be able to prove where your food products contain, where they come from and how they are processed. With recalls on the rise, improper food labelling can spell major financial and reputational consequences for your brand. Bureau Veritas provides a variety of food product certifications that enable food industry players to earn consumer trust, manage risk and achieve regulatory compliance. These include GMO-free, Gluten-free, allergen, Label Rouge , origin denomination  (e.g. PDO, PGI , IGP, etc.), Organic and other food product labels and marks of conformity.

Seafood
Global demand for seafood continues to grow. However, destructive fishing practices are depleting fish populations, and increasing reliance on intensive aquaculture is leading to greater health risks. Bureau Veritas offers a wide range of certification services and digital solutions for players across the seafood value chain. Bureau Veritas supports you to demonstrate that your seafood, whether wild or farm-raised, is safe, healthy and responsibly sourced.

Food sustainability
Taking proactive action when it comes to environmental and social responsibility enables you to improve efficiency and consumer trust, reduce risk and gain an edge on your competitors. Bureau Veritas offers a wide range certification and auditing solutions—from Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) and organic product certification, to responsible sourcing and supplier audits—that allow food industry players across the value chain demonstrate their commitment to sustainability.

Food digital solutions
New technologies are making it easier than ever for food industry players to achieve and maintain quality, safety and responsibility, notably by enabling greater traceability and transparency. To compete in today’s global food sector, you must make the most of what digitalization has to offer. Bureau Veritas has developed range of digital solutions for the food industry. From digital supply chain risk monitoring, to digital inspection optimization and blockchain food tracking, Bureau Veritas brings cutting-edge technologies (e.g. drone, smart glasses) to your food quality, safety, compliance and performance challenges.
