Food & Beverage sector
The food and beverage sector is now the biggest manufacturing sector in Europe.
In the last decade alone EU food and drink exports have doubled, reaching over €90 billion. In Ireland, the food and beverage sector is now the country’s largest industry with an annual turnover of over €25 billion and sustains over 230,000 jobs.
A challenging sector
Even though there is significant growth within this sector, organisations face tough challenges to sustain growth while meeting demands and remaining competitive.
To tackle these challenges organisations from the food & beverage sector have turned to ISO management systems to provide opportunities to grow and become competitive in their respective markets. Certification Europe provides assessment, certification and training to organisations within the food and beverage industry to ensure they are up-to date on all developments, and that their workforce effectively implements the management systems to their full potential. Energy Management (ISO 50001) and Quality Management (ISO 9001) have played key roles for organisations that wish to improve operational efficiency throughout and reduce growing energy costs, allowing opportunities to grow the business.
Implementing ISO standards helps organisations to:
- Streamline quality management systems
- Ensure quality standards of your service are maintained
- Reduce energy consumption
- Comply with any international regulations
- Improve performance across the organisation
- Minimise risk or maximise employee safety
- Reduce environmental impact
