We are thrilled to announce our 1st location within Latin America market to meet the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) standards of certification, FSSC 22000, one of the most important certification in food safety management.

FSSC 22000 is a food safety certification system developed by the Foundation for Food Safety Certification, and approved by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), thus achieving international recognition and reach. The GFSI organization was established in 2000 to collaborate with industry stakeholders and outlined benchmarks to focus on improving food safety systems.
“We are proud to be recognized for meeting this quality standard for the continuous improvement of food safety management systems. This is to ensure confidence in the delivery of quality products that are safe for our customers”, adds Fernando Putrino, General Manager, Brazil.
The Diana Pet Food facility in Descalvado, San Pablo, Brazil, is one of four locations producing palatants in the Latin American market. The accreditation was achieved in March 2021. This certification establishes Diana Pet Food as a global and regional leader within the petfood industry in meeting a food requirement that is currently focused towards human food manufacturing.
