It is a pleasure to note that the CII Food Safety Award program has helped raise awareness on sustainable success through benchmarks in food safety systems and provide guidance to those seeking to achieve it. Based on a process of feedback and review with stakeholders and in line with the changing market scenario, the assessment models have been duly upgraded.
