ISO 22005 Food traceability

The ISO 22005 certification sets out to guarantee the typicality, genuineness and traceability throughout all the food supply chain.

The standard satisfies the needs of organisations for effective management and control of the food traceability system, both inside the company and in the supply chain. It highlights the origin of the product and/or particular ingredients, and adds value to significant characteristics of typicality, genuineness, geographical and/or production characterisation.


  • Transparent and complete definition of the history and origin of each food product
  • accuracy of all specific product information
  • increase in the efficiency and productivity of organisations
  • identification of the roles and responsibilities of each operator in the supply chain
  • observance of local, national or international regulations
  • prompt recall of products in the event of any potentially hazardous situation.
