Across the globe, meals have largely become an “international affair” for consumers. During a typical dinner, a family on either side of the equator can dine on beef from Argentina, lettuce from Columbia, strawberries from Mexico, mushrooms from China, cheese from New Zealand, and spices from Turkey.


In today's global marketplace, consumers are demanding assurances they are purchasing safe and quality food products. Wanting the same assurances, a growing number of retailers and manufacturers are requiring suppliers to demonstrate their commitment to safe and quality products through highly recognized global certification schemes, such as those that are benchmarked and recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).
