Food safety goes beyond the food itself; it’s also about the social practices of those working to deliver safe food to your dinner table. The Social Accountability Audit helps by identifying key areas for assessing the social practices being implemented by organizations at the ground level.


Organizations have the flexibility to use this audit in conjunction with a PrimusGFS audit, or as a stand alone audit. It does not have to be used solely by PrimusGFS certified operations.
