The international food standard: Bureaucratic burden or helpful management instrument in global markets? Empirical results from the German food industry

At this point in time, quality assurance schemes in the food industry and agricultural sec - tor are becoming increasingly popular. The International Food Standard is one of the most import - ant. This paper presents the results of an empirical study in the German food industry. In early 2005, 65 food manufacturers answered an extensive questionnaire and gave insights into their per - ceptions of the advantages and disadvantages of certification systems. The study focuses on the International Food Standard, which has gained much relevance in the German food industry since all major German retailers have subscribed to the system and, for the most part, no longer accept sup - pliers that do not have IFS certificates.
