ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA, U.S. — AACC International recently released a new custom guide, “User’s Guide to ISO 22000 Food Safety Management System for the Grain Handling, Processing, Milling, and Baking Industries.”

The guide, developed by AACC International, includes licensed content from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

This 84‐page document is a how‐to guide for developing and implementing ISO 22000 food safety standards specifically for any business that handles or processes bulk grains or ingredients. It includes the complete ISO 22000 standard, plus color‐coded sections that impart valuable knowledge, experience, and advice from experts in the grain handling, processing, milling, and baking industries. The color‐coded sections are easy to follow and appear throughout this tailored document to help organizations learn:

• Food safety guideline interpretations applied to the grains industry.

• Best application practices for grain handling and processing environments.

• Key advice for dealing with third‐party audits and auditors.

“This guide significantly reduces the cost of compliance through the sharing of knowledge and best practices,” said Charles Hurburgh, professor of ag and biosystems engineering at Iowa State University and member of the AACCI Food Safety, Quality and Regulatory Committee. “Compliance brings operations in line with Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) and Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) rules. Plus, it allows for better organization, consistent safety and product quality standards, and the generation of vital documentation that’s increasingly necessary for a world supply chain environment.”
