AENOR has developed an extensive catalogue of certifications that contribute to stimulating confidence between the different agents of the food sector, in response to the increasingly greater demands of consumers with regard to the food safety and quality. Any company that wants be competitive and, above all, wants to introduce its products to certain markets, needs the guarantee of a company of prestigious certification like AENOR.

The certificates offered by AENOR include the ISO Food Safety Certificate 22000, which constitutes an efficient tool for all kinds of organisations in the food chain to manage food safety, and to manage the certificates of the main private schemes requested by European distributors, such as BRC, IFS, BRC-Packaging, FSSC 22000​ or GLOBALGAP, among others. On the other hand, there is an increasing demand by consumers for a Quality and/or Food Safety guarantee. In this respect, Animal Welfare certifications, the FACE certification or the ELS certification for products without gluten are pertinent.

AENOR offers you the opportunity to obtain, with the BRC, IFS, ISO 22000, FSSC 22000 or, the certificates in HACCP and/or GMP based on the Codex Alimentarius. Find out about how to obtain these joint certificates.

AENOR Laboratorio, from the experience, rigour, and reliability, that AENOR has been developing over 10 years food analyses in the physics and chemistry, microbiology, and sensory fields, for the main companies in the food sector.
