Two Rhenus warehouses receive ISO 22000 certification in France

Rhenus has just obtained ISO 22000 certification for two of its warehouses located in Saint-Quentin Fallavier (East of Lyon in France) and dedicated to dry food products. The certification attests to the compliance of Rhenus with the requirements of the international standards and guarantees optimum food safety for food industry customers and end consumers.

This is the first ISO 22000 certification for Rhenus in France. Valid for three years, the certification will be subject to an annual follow-up audit. These two multi-client sites are mainly dedicated to the storage and logistics of dry food products. They already house the stocks of several manufacturers and are intended to accommodate others.

The certification audit highlighted the "safety culture" of the staff, who have all received training in hygiene, cleanliness and good practices arising from the requirements of the standards. Product traceability, a key element of food safety, is guaranteed by the use of high-performance IT tools. Obtaining the certification was also made possible by the mobilisation of all the staff in the two warehouses and of the support teams.

"The dry food industry is one of the key sectors in which we have long experience and expertise. This is why we have successfully undertaken to have our two main food warehouses certified. Obtaining ISO 22000 certification gives us greater recognition among food manufacturers. I would like to congratulate the teams involved, at all levels, for their commitment during the audit period and over the long term”, explains Laurent Schuster, Managing Director of Rhenus Logistics France
