The Global Harmonization Initiative (GHI) is the international non-profit network of individual scientists and scientific organisations working together to promote harmonization of global food safety regulations and legislation.

The GHI engages and empowers food scientists and experts in industry, government and academia to voice scientific consensus and make recommendations on food safety laws and regulations, globally. It aims to provide objective and fact-based advice that will help harmonize conflicting regulations and legal policies to:

  • Eliminate trade barriers that masquerade as food safety protections
  • Reduce the needless destruction of safe foods within and across international borders
  • Promote the use of innovative food safety technologies around the globe
  • Lessen the potential for foodborne illness and pandemic outbreaks
