What is SimplyOK?
SimplyOK’s goal is for allergen information to be communicated clearly, reliably and completely around the world, for example on labels and in product specifications. To achieve this the Foundation checks the allergen management systems of food production and processing companies via a certification system. The checks, or audits, are carried out by specially-trained auditors of the Vinçotte ISACert and Lloyd’s Register certification service providers. The auditors pay extra attention to the five basic pillars of allergen management, which include the prevention of cross-contamination. A SimplyOK-audit is always supplementary to an FSSC, BRC or IFS audit.
