Emmi Roth USA Earns New FSSC 22000 Certification at Platteville, Wisconsin Facility
MONROE, Wis. – After many months of diligent preparation, Emmi Roth USA announces its
77,000 sq. ft. specialty cheese plant in Platteville, Wisconsin has received FSSC 22000
Certification by the Global Food Safety Initiative.
FSSC 22000 is one of the most rigorous food safety standards issued and covers a facility’s
entire supply chain. The certification integrates Good Manufacturing Practices, HACCP, as well
as traceability and legal food safety requirements in an ISO 22000:2005 Quality Management
System. Emmi Roth USA’s Monroe, Wis. creamery received its FSSC 22000 certification in
2012, with the new specialty cheese plant in Platteville now following suit.
“We have always been, and will continue to be committed to producing the highest quality and
safest products for our customers” said Tim Omer, Managing Director of Emmi Roth USA. “This
new certification clearly demonstrates that commitment, and we are proud to be recognized as
an industry leader in food safety.”
The new FSSC 22000 certification means the facility will comply with both ISO 22,000 and
ISO/TS 22002-1. It is one of only a handful of cheese plants in the nation to achieve the highest
standard of food safety recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative.
