The first FSSC 22000 certification within the Japanese cornstarch industry

On 8 October 2011, Japan Corn Starch became the first cornstarch/polysaccharide producer in Japan to receive certification under FSSC 22000, a complete certification scheme for Food Safety Systems recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFIS), a business-driven initiative for the continuous improvement of food safety management systems.
While we have long considered food safety to be fundamental to all that we do, we take the receipt of this certification as an opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to providing our consumers with safe and wholesome food products.
More specifically, actively utilizing this Food Safety System Certified (FSSC) system for food safety management will help us continue in our efforts to develop systems, enhance facilities, and train personnel toward the ultimate goal of contributing to society through the stable provision of safe and wholesome food products.

Food Safety System Certification 22000


The FSSC 22000 Standard is a combination of ISO 22000, a standard for the management of food safety systems from the International Organization for Standardization, and PAS 220, a standard for general food safety based on HACCP (Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points) methodology. The FSSC Standard provides a tight set of controls over managerial systems to assure safety and sanitation throughout the food processing industry.
