In recent years there have been several developments in the field of food safety. As a food producer, it is vital to ensure the production of safe food products. Producers can achieve this by implementing food safety management systems. There are several FSMSs food producers can implement, such as BRC, IFS, ISO 22000 or FSSC 22000. This report focuses on FSSC 22000. The main question of this research was ‘How was the process of implementing FSSC 22000 handled in food production companies?’. It was answered with the motivations of food producers for choosing FSSC 22000, how the producers implemented the scheme, the expectations before implementation, the advantages and disadvantages of implementing FSSC 22000 and whether they would change anything. These questions were researched by conducting interviews with eight food producers, three certification bodies and three advisory bureaus.
