Food safety is a critical component of the future of the food industries. Although governments play an important role in ensuring wholesomeness of foods, the ultimate responsibility for implementing adequate controls remains with the food industry. Food manufacturers must have a Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) plan in place, not only to meet government regulations but also to conduct business as educated customers demand high standards when it comes to food safety and quality.
In order to meet these requirements, many businesses have adopted the initiative called Safe Quality Food (SQF) or British Retail Consortium (BRC). Properly designed and documented food safety and quality management systems allow manufacturers to obtain an SQF or BRC certification. Being SQF- or BRC-certified lets your customers rely on the products you make! BD Food Safety Consultants LLC will assure that your business has well-designed, fully functioning food safety and quality systems. We offer a comprehensive assistance in getting your company ready for your initial or re-certification SQF or BRC audit. We also offer consulting services for the actual GFSI audits.
Whether you’re looking for an SQF consultant to help you achieve your SQF certification or help you pass an SQF audit, get in touch with BD Food Safety Consultants LLC today!
As of September 2015, companies that manufacture, process, pack or hold food must comply with Food Safety Modernization (FSMA) Act 21 CFR part 117 – Current Good Manufacturing Practice, Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls for Human Food. This law requires businesses to conduct a hazard analysis and implement preventive controls to manage any significant hazards. Development of the food safety system may be complicated, and in many cases, requires professional assistance. Other part of FSMA require food importers to assess the risk associated with the imported food and foreign supplier. These requirements are included in the Foreign Supplier Verification Program Rule (21 CFR Parts 1, 11 & 111). Our team of experts can assist the importers in their efforts to comply with the FSVP Rule. The newest FSMA regulation – Mitigation Strategies to Protect Food From Intentional Adulteration (21 CFR 121) requires companies to develop and implement a risk based Food Defense Plan. Your Food Defense Plan must be built using a HACCP method and will start with Vulnerability Assessment. The team at BD Food Safety Consultants LLC offers in-depth assistance in development and implementation of your FSMA-compliant food safety and food defense systems. Our experts have more than 40 years of combined experience in a variety of food sector categories. Contact us today to get started on your FSMA compliance!
