Leading GFSI-aligned food safety certification for manufacturers.

IFS is an internationally-recognised food safety and quality standard focussing on food manufacturers’ processes and products.



LRQA’s (LRQA) IFS Food audit services examine everything from your resource management and senior management responsibility to your planning and measurement processes.

Whether you have multiple sites or require a combined audit, our IFS Food audit and training services deliver value in a practical, cost-effective way. Through working with LRQA, you will have peace of mind that your audit is carried out by a pragmatic, independently-accredited team which understands both your sector and your specific business needs.

Gap analysis & training

If your business is not ready for an IFS Food audit, or you need to identify what you must do to achieve certification, the LRQA team can work with you to pinpoint the gaps with a pre-audit gap analysis.

LRQA also offers a range of IFS training courses, which can help prepare your staff for a successful audit while developing food safety skills in parallel.

Integrated audits

LRQA offers more than IFS Food audits; we deliver complementary modules and audits for other standards such as BRCGS, FSSC 22000, ISO 22000 and SMETA, which can benefit businesses across sectors.

Speak with our team today about your requirements and we’ll help you streamline your audit experience.


For products and services certifications against products and services accreditation (e.g. for IFS Food), the use of the COFRAC mark or reference to any LRQA or COFRAC marks are not authorised, as stated in our Customer Information Note.


We maintain our impartiality by proactively managing conflicts of interest across all LRQA businesses including those which may exist between consultancy and third-party certification services. Click here to learn more
