Similar to other food safety standards such as ISO 22000 and HACCP, FSSC 22000 represents a comprehensive approach to food safety risk management throughout the food supply chain. However, FSSC 22000 has been recognized by food-focused groups like the GFSI. Meanwhile, ISO 22000 is not recognized by GFSI. FSSC 22000 is also more rigid because it has additional and more extensive steps.
