Its price is reasonable and should be good value, and a worthwhile acquisition, particularly for food businesses starting on the road to achieve accreditation to that standard." (International Journal of Dairy Technology, February 2011)

“This book offers companies in the food industry the first comprehensive guide to preparing for the Global Standard Audit.” (Beverage and Food World, May 2009)
