Canadian Grain Commission's grain safety programs achieve global acknowledgement

The Canadian Grain Commission's grain safety certification programs are now acknowledged by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). This acknowledgement demonstrates the rigor and credibility of the Canadian Grain Commission's programs, which in turn will give certified companies greater access to world markets.

Through its benchmarking procedure, GFSI has concluded that the following Canadian Grain Commission programs meet globally accepted science-based standards in food safety management:

  • Canadian Grain Commission Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (CGC HACCP)
  • Canadian Identity Preserved System and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (CIPRS + HACCP)

By achieving GFSI Technical Equivalence, the Canadian Grain Commission is in a stronger position to support grain handling companies meet both international regulatory and market-driven food safety demands.
