Cosmo Plastech attains globally recognised FSSC 22000 for food packaging

FSSC 22000 (Food Safety System Certification) has requirements on food waste for delivering on UN SDG commitments

Cosmo First Ltd. announces that Cosmo Plastech (Rigid sheets, Thermoforming & Injection Molding) has attained the FSSC 22000 food safety certification, a mandatory requirement for packaging material in direct contact with food. FSSC 22000 contains requirements that help companies address risks from food fraud, food defence, food safety and quality culture, quality control, allergen management and environmental monitoring programs.

This certification is based on the existing internationally recognised standard ISO 22000 and complemented by technical standards, such as ISO TS 22002-1 for food manufacturing and ISO TS 22002-4 for packaging manufacturing.  Further, this is also consistent with other standards, such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 (including the alignment with ISO High-Level Structure).

The FSSC 22000 certification includes several benefits for the company and stakeholders such as:

·         Commitment to identify, evaluate, and control food safety hazards to avoid consumer harm directly or indirectly.

·         Helps in meeting food quality/safety requirements and legal compliance.

·         Provide a tool for food safety performance improvement and the means to monitor and measure food safety performance effectively.

·         Develop a good food safety culture which improves customer confidence and aids in acquiring competitive advantages.

Sharing his views on the certification, Pankaj Poddar, Group CEO, of Cosmo First Limited said “The Global market is distinguished by its significant youth population, leading to a booming demand for fast food and packaged food. This trend indicates substantial growth potential for the food packaging sector. Therefore, obtaining the FSSC 22000 certification is a positive step for us as a group, enabling enhanced service to the industry.”
