About us

Creating a better world

Foundation FSSC is the global non-profit and independent Scheme owner to provide trust and deliver impact to the consumer goods industry. Based in the Netherlands, we have regional representatives for organizations across North America, South America, India, Japan, Türkiye, and the Middle East. We also have a liaison in China.

At FSSC, we have been delivering impact to consumers for over 12 years. We do so by supporting the industry in implementing food and social management systems that align with the ISO management system and harmonized structure approach. This approach enables organizations to achieve their business objectives and facilitates meeting the Sustainable Development Goals. But that’s not all. We provide continuous trust to our licensed partners by having a robust integrity program and an advanced Assurance Platform.

To fulfill our mission of creating a better world, over thirty professionals work on the improvement and innovation of the GFSI-recognized food safety management system FSSC 22000 and the social management system FSSC 24000.

Governance and organization

The FSSC Schemes are managed by Foundation FSSC and governed by an independent Board of Stakeholders consisting of representatives from several sectors in the consumer goods industry.

To ensure transparency and involvement of the industry as a whole, an Advisory Committee makes recommendations regarding technical aspects like unannounced audits, food fraud, guidance documents, and Scheme revisions. The Advisory Committee of FSSC reports to our Board of Stakeholders.
