Ardagh Jacareí and Alagoinhas Facilities Achieve FSSC 22000 Food Safety System Certification
Ardagh Group Metal Beverage Brazil, a division of Ardagh Group (NYSE: ARD), announces that its Jacareí and Alagoinhas manufacturing facilities have achieved Food Safety System Certification (FSSC) 22000 certification.
The FSSC 22000 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.
In order to achieve certification, both facilities invested heavily in training to ensure that they met all FSSC 22000 requirements.
"FSSC 22000 certification brings with it global recognition of Ardagh's ability to identify and control food safety hazards. The certification of our Brazilian can plants is a result of our entire team’s commitment to driving continuous improvement in food safety management systems, for the safety and well-being of both our customers and consumers," said Augusto Seoane, Director of Operations for Ardagh Group, Metal Beverage – South America.
With these recent achievements, both Ardagh Group manufacturing facilities in Brazil are now FSSC 22000 certified.
