The International Food Standard (IFS) is GFSI benchmarked to create a uniform standard for food, product, and services. They ensure that IFS-certified companies produce a product or provide a service that complies with customer specifications, while continually working on process improvements. IFS Certification aims to ensure comparability and transparency for the consumer throughout the entire supply chain and to reduce costs for suppliers and retailers.
The GFSI benchmarked IFS Standard gives clear and uniform requirements as to the level to be achieved for satisfactory implementation of the standard.
