Kuehne + Nagel has once again shown its management practices and procedures are of the highest standard, after securing ISO 22000:2018 accreditation.
For those organisations involved in the food supply chain, achieving the standard reflects a positive food safety and quality culture, with businesses facing increasing demands to demonstrate such a commitment.
Richard Werran, BSI Group Director, Food EMEA, said: “By combining the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle to manage business risk with HACCP to identify, prevent and control food safety hazards, conformity to ISO 22000 helps organisations reduce exposure to risk and improve safety, encouraging operational and organisational resilience.
“Kuehne + Nagel’s achievement demonstrates to customers and suppliers that the organisation is committed to providing safe foods and services that meet statutory and regulatory requirements.”
Brian Nealon, Kuehne + Nagel UK QSHE Director, commented: “Our customers, and fundamentally, the end consumer, expect each and every single touchpoint of the food supply chain process to be managed and governed in accordance with the highest of standards.
“As the first organisation to achieve conformity to the revised ISO 22000:2018 standard globally from BSI, Kuehne + Nagel is absolutely delighted to be leading from the front.”
