Certification to recognized industry standards has an essential part to play in ensuring the safety and integrity of our food – from ingredients to finished products, and from supply chains to processing units.

To compete more advantageously and to protect brands more effectively, forward-thinking businesses are going beyond certification by implementing second-party audit programs to provide an additional layer of assurance over and above core compliance. Second-party audits often form part of a wider customized assurance program.

LRQA's customized second-party audit programs ensure suppliers meet a company’s food safety requirements as well as health, safety, and environmental, and ethical trading and responsible sourcing criteria.
