Is there a difference between a Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) audit and a Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) audit? Do you know what the difference is? You may not know, but each audit type may have benefits for your food manufacturing facility. But choosing the audit that’s right for you, or whether you need both, may be more complicated. Learn the similarities and differences between the two and why each can be mutually beneficial in raising the food safety standard for your facility.
