CANTANHEDE, Vanessa; PEREIRA, Karen Signori  e  BARRETO, Daniel Weingart. FSSC 22000 Packaging Implementation: a Plastics Industry Research. Polímeros [online]. 2018, vol.28, n.1, pp.38-43.  Epub 15-Mar-2018. ISSN 1678-5169.

This paper presents the outcomes of an exploratory research carried out in companies, which are located in Brazil. They are FSSC-22000-certified food plastic packaging manufacturers. In order to identify the key aspects of the implementation process and certification, a questionnaire was developed and sent to twenty certified organizations. Out of them, eleven of which participating companies responded in a collaborative way. Based on the data obtained, improving competitiveness and customer retention were the reasons, which led the companies to seek the certification. However, the greatest difficulties were related to personnel, which presented technical and behavioral issues. In addition, it was noted that an overall satisfaction, derived from after-certification benefits, has been arisen in the companies. For instance, enhanced employee awareness, improved company's image and winning new customers, significantly contributing to their competitiveness, are some of the benefits found in this process.
