Audit FSSC2200: food safety guaranteed
Food safety is of course an important theme at Vetipak. That is why we are proud of the positive results of the FSSC2200 audit, which independently tests us against it.
The FSSC2200 audit of the ISACert certification body took place at our locations in Oss and Veghel at the end of June. The audit is specifically aimed at food safety. We have been tested against the newly released standard versions of the FSSC22000 (V5) en ISO22000 (2018). These standards focus in particular on the PDCA cycle and on risk-based thinking, both at the level of the overarching management system and the operational HACCP plan.
Of course there was a strict corona protocol. For example, interviews in the production environment were replaced by remote demonstrations. Thanks to these measures, we were able to go through the planned audit program completely and the auditor obtained a good overview.
And the result? As expected, it was very positive. We were given a few small minors for improvement, which we of course immediately addressed. Another result we are proud of!

Mark van der Burgt recently shared his credo with us: involve co-packers in your product development at the earliest possible stage.

We put this question to Julie Navarro, Packaging and Quality Manager at Nestlé International Travel Retail in Switzerland.
