Diversey extends partnership withThe Consumer Goods Forum

Diversey and The Consumer Goods Forum (CGF), an independent global business network for consumer retailers and manufacturers, have announced a three-year extension of their partnership to provide technical expertise and best practices leadership for the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). Under the partnership, Diversey’s food safety experts will actively participate in the GFSI Technical Working Group and provide counsel on food safety auditing and training services as well as sanitation and food safety guidelines in the food service, retail and manufacturing environments.

“The safety of the world’s food supply is vitally important to the future and sustainability of the world’s population,” said Pedro Chidichimo, Diversey’s president of global customer solutions and innovation. “We are pleased to continue our longstanding partnership with the CGF, bringing focused attention to the issues and trends of food safety and providing Diversey’s expertise in sanitation and public health.”

As a partner to the GFSI, Diversey will support a global food safety think-tank panel to deliver thought leadership and research around food safety which will build on the jointly developed Food Safety 2020 project. Launched in 2010, the Food Safety 2020 project has surveyed the food safety community about the trends and issues most likely to face the industry in the next 10 years. The project continues to provide active dialogue and best practices sharing around issues such as new technologies, biological risks, supply chain and food contamination.

“The Consumer Goods Forum looks forward to continuing its work with Diversey in promoting improvements to food safety standards globally,” said Jean-Marc Saubade, managing director, the Consumer Goods Forum. “Diversey provides a wealth of expertise and support to pursue the development of GFSI’s mission to provide continuous improvement of food safety to ensure the delivery of safe food to consumers.”
