Five Seven Fresh Supermarkets Granted International Food Safety Certification
By Martin Li
Five Seven Fresh supermarkets across China have received FSSC 22000 Food Safety Management System Certification, an internationally-recognized standard for food safety that safeguards public health. Seven Fresh is JD’s innovative omnichannel fresh food supermarket business.
“The certification is a new start for Seven Fresh,” said Duan Lixia, business director of Seven Fresh. “It marks a milestone for Seven Fresh, by improving our quality management system and meeting international standards. We will continue fulfilling our commitment to putting food safety first and keep improving to win customer trust.”
The five certified supermarkets are located in Beijing, Xian, Chengdu and Guangzhou.
The FSSC 22000 food safety certification system is managed by Foundation FSSC 22000, based in The Netherlands and governed by an independent board of stakeholders, consisting of representatives from several sectors in the food industry. Applicants have to meet strict standards in raw material storage, dining infrastructure, processing and processed food storage.
Relying on JD’s strong supply chain capability, Seven Fresh has been sparing no efforts to ensure food safety in order to meet these standards, including supervision of original production areas, requirements for necessary inspection documents and random checks.
