OKIN, upper level of IFS one more year
OKIN has renewed the 'International Food Standard' (IFS) food safety certificate with a score of 97.74%, which is the highest level of IFS.
This mark certifies that OKIN guarantees the food safety of its products and controls the quality level of food factories. "This certification reaffirms our clear commitment to quality and food safety, in a bid to maintain these values as priority objectives for the future of the company," says Ibaia Arocena, OKIN's Quality Manager.
The IFS Food Standard is a GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative) recognized standard for auditing food manufacturers. The focus is on food safety and the quality of processes and products. It concerns food processing companies and companies that pack loose food products.
IFS Food applies when products are “processed” or when there is a hazard for product contamination during primary packing. The Standard is important for all food manufacturers, especially for those producing private labels, as it contains many requirements related to the compliance with customer specifications.
The Standard supports the production and marketing departments in their efforts for brand safety and quality. IFS Food has been developed with full and active involvement of certification bodies, retailers, food industry and food service companies.
