Metsä Board announces that its Simpele mill has recently integrated the FSSC 22000 food safety system into its management systems and received third party certificate to verify this.

The FSSC 22000 Food Safety System provides a framework for effectively managing an organisation's food safety responsibilities. FSSC 22000 is fully recognised by the GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative) and is based on existing ISO Standards.

It demonstrates that a company has a robust Food Safety Management System in place that meets the requirements of both direct customers and consumers. The GFSI brings together key players from the food industry to collaboratively drive continuous improvement in food safety management systems around the world.

Metsä Board is a leading European producer of premium fresh fibre paperboards including folding boxboards, food service boards and white kraftliners.
