Danisco Sugar - A world premiere in food safety management

We are proud to be the first company to achieve certification to this long-awaited global standard, thanks to BVQI’s efficient team.
Henrik Solkaer
Vice President responsible for sustainable development, Danisco Sugar

BUSINESS CHALLENGE

Hygiene and food safety are top priorities for Danisco Sugar.  Because contaminants can be introduced in any part of the food chain, good communication and proper procedure at every stage of production are essential.  The company must also comply with national,  regional, and industry standards, a cumbersome task complicated by the wide range of players involved in production.  In Danisco Sugar’s case, the supply chain extends from the 12,000 Northern European growers who supply the main raw material – sugar beets – to the final consumers, both human and animal.  The arrival of a single global standard covering both the food and feed industries was awaited with great anticipation.

SOLUTION

In 2001, led by a Danish initiative, the International Organization for Standardization formed a working group to develop a new food safety standard that would be recognized worldwide, and could be implemented at every stage of the food chain.  BVQI Denmark’s Jacob Faergemand headed the team of specialists from 23 countries chosen to bring together the best of all existing national and regional food safety guidelines.  The finalized standard, designated ISO 22000, was published in September 2005 and has been heralded as the first international standard to address food safety management across the entire supply chain, from “farm to fork.”  Recognized by over 40 countries, its fundamental components include active communication along the food chain, comprehensive hazard analysis and control, and integrated system management.  Having already formed a close relationship with Bureau Veritas on earlier projects, Danisco Sugar turned to BVQI upon recognizing the great benefits of certification to the new international standard.  Following a complete assessment of the existing food safety management system, BVQI worked with Danisco Sugar to harmonize all aspects of its food control operations, focusing particularly on communication.  Work extended from Danish headquarters to over 80 production sites around the world.  In December 2005, Danisco Sugar became the first company in the world to be certified to ISO 22000.

BENEFITS

As the first company in its field to seek ISO 22000 certification, Danisco Sugar has distinguished itself as a pioneer in food safety.  One of the earliest benefits of certification came through the process itself:  during the assessment phase, internal lines of communication across all avenues of the company’s supply chain necessarily became clearer, through collaboration toward a common goal.  In turn, and with internationally-respected guidelines now in place, Danisco Sugar’s ability to monitor safety at every stage of the food chain has been enhanced, leading to greater overall efficiency.  Globally, this certification has the potential to create a positive ripple effect through the supply chain, extending the food safety benefits far beyond Danisco Sugar’s direct suppliers and thus contributing to consumer confidence.
