Authors: Paweł Nowicki, Piotr Kafel, Urszula Balon, Magdalena Wojnarowska

Abstract: The aim of this paper is to investigate the scope of undertaken and planned actions related to circular economy's standardized management systems according to first Europe's published standards (BS 8001: 2017, XPX 30-901: 2018) in the leading polish food sector organization for better under-standing the relations between circular economy, quality management and food safety management systems. The authors try to estimate which requirements of both standards suite best for the food sector companies as well as which of them will fulfil the companies' expectations and requirements in the area of circular economics. This study also enriches the current knowledge about ways of using and integrating circular economy with the existing management systems within the food sector companies. The main limitation of the analysis is that it covers only one international organization with its specific strategy and management culture. It is recommended for the future research to in-vestigate the topic in other organizations.
