The global food safety system is in constant evolution: from the United States with the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) in effect since 2016, to the Safe Food for Canadians Regulation (SFCR) regulating food safety in Canada since January 2019, to the Chinese Food Safety Regulation in effect since December 1, 2019, and many more countries, including those closer to home, like the UK and the European Union.

These regulatory updates stem from global awareness regarding dramatic changes in the global food system, including the understanding that foodborne illnesses are a significant public health concern and an economic threat.

To keep up with this evolution, ESI adopts a new approach of assistance and support across over 70 countries worldwide, leveraging the ITA group’s 90+ Regulatory offices, to create a food safety management system that aligns your company perfectly with the regulations of the country you are exporting to or intending to start exporting to.

Why the ESI Global Assistance Plan was created

How to meet the numerous demands of Italian food companies wanting to leverage market opportunities while ensuring regulatory alignment? How to make the company’s “Quality” fully aware of the requirements of various buyers and importers while providing constant and economically advantageous support? We have designed and implemented a global assistance plan dedicated to a select number of food industries, guaranteeing:

  • support and engagement with top food safety experts for each country;

  • document evaluation and compliance with specific regulations;

  • fixed cost for professional and ongoing assistance;

  • priority in handling requests for ESI clients.
