AIB International has launched the Pandemic Prepared Certification, the first certification of its kind. The certification provides assurance for the food and beverage supply chain, as well as consumers, that companies are committed to establishing and maintaining best practices, according to AIB.
The certification centers around five areas in which operations will need to demonstrate proficiency to become certified to this standard: pandemic crisis management, supply chain management, intermittent operations planning management, health crisis mitigation measures and management, and a pre-requisite program review.
“We developed the Pandemic Prepared Certification because the food and beverage supply chain were ill-prepared for a global pandemic and the associated disruption it created in nearly every aspect of business operations world-wide,” said Steve Robert, Global VP of Sales, Marketing and Innovation, AIB International. “The AIB International Pandemic Prepared Certification is a proactive measure to help companies across the supply chain prepare for the future with the only best-in-class protocol benchmark.”
