ISO 22000 Projects at Grøndal Dairy
During 2011 it was decided that Grøndal should aim for certification in accordance with ISO 22000.
The purpose of this was to:
- Get the highest standard on the food safety assurance programe
- Upgrade the whole organisation with knowledge and awareness on food safety
- Signal that our Management System to control food safety is in place and up to date
- Ensure an ongoing focus internally on continuous improvements
In June 2012, Grøndal Dairy was awarded the ISO 22000-2005 certificate with the underlying programmes: PAS 220:2008 and FSSC 22000. All employees have been trained in ISO 22000 and through continuous self-audits, knowledge and awareness is maintained throughout the organisation. The goal is that all employees over time are able to accomplish such audits and thus strengthen the daily effort to maintain the highest food safety assurance and product quality.
