IFS – International Food Standard
IFS Food is a GFSI-recognized standard to audit food quality and safety processes and products of companies in the food sector. It only applies to companies producing single unit food or in bulk.
WQS is the only Brazilian company to be recognized and accredited by this body, in addition to have auditors in Brazil – which makes the certification easier and feasible to several food companies. The most important distributors in Europe require IFS certification from suppliers which are included in their supply chain.
However, IFS is an international standard and can also be applicable to suppliers outside Europe.
