PrimusGFS offers certification along the entire supply chain from production on the farm to processing & storing operations
PrimusGFS Audit and Certification
PrimusGFS is a Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) benchmarked and fully recognized audit scheme covering both GAP and GMP scopes as well as food safety management systems (FSMS). The Primus standard GFSI benchmarking was announced on February 23rd, 2010. PrimusGFS standard is a GFSI benchmarked food safety auditing standard, that applies to all levels in the agricultural food chain.
Unlike other GFSI standards, which are classified into primary production or manufacturing categories, a PrimusGFS audit offers certification along the entire supply chain (focusing on agricultural and minimally-processed products), from production on the farm to processing and storing operations. A PrimusGFS audit uses a scored audit approach, as opposed to the standard 'minor' and 'major' non-conformances that Food Safety Managers may be familiar with. This approach allows organizations to steadily improve their score over time, while still meeting the base score needed to pass the audit.
