The "International Featured Standards" set of rules with a range of food, product and service standards was developed in 2003 by representatives of the European food retail trade as the "International Food Standard" for the purpose of standardised verification of food safety and the quality level of producers. Following updates and the development of further standards, the brand was renamed to its current name.
