Law and retailer demands• Difference – Law: licence to produce => European food law – Retail: licence to deliver – For exporting law is enough – For selling as a private label, requirements of the retailer have to be meet.
GFSI • Based in Paris.• When you are certified against one standard you do not have to go for another.• Standards are frequently benchmarked by a technical committee of producers, certification bodies, retailers.
