Food industry certification catching on in Japan

TOKYO -- Leading Japanese food manufacturers are moving to obtain an international certification in food safety at their processing facilities, hungry for an edge in winning contracts from global retailers and restaurant chains.

This Kewpie facility in Ibaraki Prefecture has been certified under FSSC 22000.

     Condiment maker Kewpie plans to have all 90 or so of its domestic production facilities and five of its overseas sites certified under the Food Safety System Certification 22000 regime by November 2015.
