ISO 22000 Revision Status and Expected Key Changes, Kosher Certification and the Current Food Safety, Food Defence and Related Issues in the Food Industry

ISO 22000:2005 is one of the major international food standards developed by the Technical Committee TC 34/SC 17 from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The standard is currently being reviewed and is presently at the Committee Draft stage (CD). The first voting by the ISO members will take place in the first quarter of 2017. Publication of the fully revised standard is expected to take place in 2018. 

Understanding the expected key structure and changes in advance will enable companies to prepare for the transition ahead to ensure a smooth upgrading process to maintain the certification.    

Over the past several years, sales of Kosher certified products have grown at an annual rate of 15%. Close to 1 million products are currently certified as Kosher and consumers spend over 200 billion USD on these Kosher products annually. Attaining Kosher certification provides opportunities for food producers to develop and strengthen the export markets.

Manufacturing of Kosher foods requires specific attention to the raw materials and ingredients used (some are intrinsically Kosher or non-Kosher), equipment and production processes utilized as well as product labelling. The Kosher symbol licensed following successful certification would allow the consumer to identify those products that have undergone all the necessary checks to verify their Kosher status.

Food safety, food defence and food security issues continue to be  critical concerns for food companies to achieve sustainable business growth. The current challenges include GMO issues, use of antibiotic in meat and seafood, allergen control, E coli/Salmonella outbreak, production of fake/counterfeit food and ineffective monitoring programmes.

Understanding the key concerns in food safety and related issues, taking appropriate counter measures as well as implementing continual improvements are essential pathways to enabling food companies and practitioners to overcome the growing challenges in the food industry.
