Carefully, certificate is issued

This way, we make sure our food is safe and 'healthy'.

Certification in the food sector

Schouten Certification can assess your food safety management system in accordance with FSSC 22000.

As an independent certifying body, Schouten Certification contributes to food safety and health by assessing whether companies conduct their business in a safe manner. Our auditors also assess if companies comply with legislation and with demands from the end-users such as supermarket chains.

Traditionally, we have focussed on companies in the animal feed supply chain. Because of this, Schouten Certification has a lot of food and feed safety expertise. Starting in 2019, we also offer FSSC 22000 and ISO 22000 certificates. We also have license and accreditation for GMP+ FCA and Gluten-free. This way, one audit team can assess all aspects of our company.

The FSSC 22000 scheme has been accepted by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), a collaboration of supermarket chains. FSSC 22000 also is the only scheme, accepted by GFSI, that has scopes specifically for the feed industry. A good example of a company for which our combined approach could work, is a company that processes by-products from both the food and agriculture sector.

If you would like an IFS or BRC certificate and want to make use of our combined audits, please contact Schouten Certification. We will make sure that the assessment will be as efficient and effective as possible. For more information, you can mail to This email address is being protected from spambots.
