Paul Bulcke has been Chief Executive Officer of Nestlé S.A., since April 2008. According to Mr. Bulcke, “ISO has a specific role to play as a truly global, multi-stakeholder, export-driven, consensus-based standardization organization: it enables us to work efficiently.”
ISO standards and food
Today more than ever, food products regularly cross national boundaries at every stage of the supply chain. ISO International Standards create confidence in the products we eat or drink by ensuring the world uses the same recipe when it comes to food quality, safety and efficiency. ISO’s standards provide a platform for developing practical tools through common understanding and cooperation with all stakeholders on board – from agricultural producers, to food manufacturers, laboratories, regulators, consumers, etc. Out of more than 19 500 ISO International Standards, some 1 000 are specifically dedicated to food, and deal with subjects as diverse as agricultural machinery, logistics, transportation, manufacturing, labelling, packaging and storage.
