The value of GFSI certification depends on how the company uses its organizational resources to maximize return on investment. This includes integrating key activities into the business, such as multi-year planning, effective organizational structures, well-defined roles and expectations, and aligned individual expectations with overall company food safety certification and business objectives. Effective management of a GFSI or certified Food Safety Management System (FSMS) can have a significant impact on overall company value.
