Ardagh Glass Packaging's Indiana facility achieves FSSC 22000 Food Safety System Certification

Ardagh Glass Packaging – North America (AGP – North America), a business of Ardagh Group, announced that its Winchester, Indiana, U.S. glass manufacturing facility achieved FSSC 22000 Food Safety System Certification.

The FSSC 22000 Food Safety System Certification provides a framework for effectively managing an organisation's food safety responsibilities. Fully recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), FSSC 22000 demonstrates that a company has a robust Food Safety Management System in place.

“Ardagh is committed to driving continuous improvement in food safety management systems within our facilities,” said Mike Fair, Vice President of Quality for Ardagh Glass Packaging – North America. “The FSSC 22000 Certification reflects Ardagh’s commitment to the quality, safety and well-being of both our customers and consumers across the U.S.”

In order to achieve certification, the Winchester facility was required to demonstrate they had effectively implemented a robust food safety management system based on FSSC 22000 requirements.

With this recent achievement, there are now a total of eight AGP – North America facilities that are FSSC 22000 certified. In addition to Winchester, AGP – North America’s Burlington, Wisconsin; Dunkirk, Indiana; Henderson, North Carolina; Pevely, Missouri; Port Allegany, Pennsylvania; Ruston, Louisiana; and Sapulpa, Oklahoma, facilities are FSSC 22000 Certified.

As the trusted and proven packaging for health, taste and the environment, glass is the only widely-used food packaging granted the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) status of “GRAS” or generally recognised as safe – the highest standard.

For more than 125 years, Ardagh has been producing innovative glass bottles in the U.S. and offers a selection of premium glass bottles and jars in a variety of colors, sizes, styles and finishes.
