Food safety with system.
Müller Packaging is the only drum manufacturer with a broad FSSC product range and many years of experience. In 2008 DIN EN 15593 was introduced at the Münchenstein and Reiden plants and then FSSC 22000 in 2015.
With this commitment, Müller Packaging meets international food standards and customers receive internationally valid proof that the contents in Müller drums are packed in accordance with FSSC 22000, which de facto excludes liability risks.
The certification achieved must be confirmed on a rolling basis by annual monitoring audits and by re-certification, which must always be carried out before the end of three years. For the production sites in Münchenstein and Reiden, this means that the greatest attention must be paid to the established continuous improvement process. The corresponding processes and responsibilities are established and have proven their worth.
When people buy, prepare and consume food, they must be confident that it will not be harmful to their health.
To ensure that food hygiene is maintained throughout production, storage, transport and processing, there are various quality systems that guarantee food safety. An important component is the possibility of product traceability. The aim of traceability is to prevent any risk to consumers in the event of a product being contaminated by a product recall.
Of the various quality systems, one stands out in particular. The internationally effective certification system Food Safety System Certification (FSSC 22000) is established and accepted worldwide. It is aimed at companies in the processing food industry and covers the entire supply chain.
- Product and process quality are optimized
- Food safety is increased
- International food standards are met
- The certification is an internationally recognized proof
- Liability risks are reduced
- Customers and trading partners can trust Müller Packaging products.
FSSC 22000 is now available in its fifth version and is based on the DIN EN ISO 22000 standards, the technical specifications for specific preventive programmes for food safety and additional requirements of the standard's sponsor, the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). The GFSI is a non-profit organisation based in the Netherlands, which enjoys a high level of acceptance in international trade and in the food processing industry.
The fifth version of the certification system FSSC 22000 was published in June 2019. Among other things, it includes requirements for allergens, which are now also applicable to the categories of transport and storage services. The changeover to the new standard must take place by 31.12.2020 and can be carried out within the framework of a re-certification or a surveillance audit. Müller Packaging recently successfully passed a monitoring audit for its production sites in Münchenstein and Reiden. Müller Packaging's food customers are thus assured that the industrial packaging in question is suitable for the secure, traceable supply chain without any ifs and buts.
The certification system FSSC 22000 supports companies with regard to food safety and quality management. With FSSC 22000, certified companies demonstrate that they meet the requirements and expectations of authorities, business partners and consumers. With FSSC 22000, the companies make a valuable contribution to security within the supply chain, even across national borders and continents.
Currently, more than 23,500 organisations around the world are FSSC 22000 certified. These include Müller AG Verpackungen with its sites in Münchenstein and Reiden.
All certified companies can be found on the official website of the certification system fssc22000.com - on a world map or in a directory. An efficient search function is provided so that certified organizations can be found quickly and reliably.
The Münchenstein and Reiden plants of Müller Packaging are FSSC 22000 certified and therefore listed in the directory.
