Good Manufacturing Practices 

What is ISO GMP ?

Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) serves as a foundational program within the Food Safety Management System, acting as a prerequisite for achieving higher levels of food safety management systems such as HACCP and ISO 22000. GMP establishes the essential hygiene and processing requirements that apply to all food processing establishments, setting a minimum standard for ensuring food safety. By adhering to GMP, organizations lay the groundwork for implementing more advanced food safety management systems and enhancing their overall food safety practices.

There are several guidelines outlining the GMP requirements, e.g.

  • Design and layout of premises

  • Supplies of water, air and energy

  • Management of waste
