What Can We Do For You?
Our goal is to help you meet your goal!
Food safety audit preparation is only part of what we do! Have quality or marketability issues? Have supply-chain challenges? Have labeling regulations or branding questions? Have FSMA Preventive Controls for Human Foods or Foreign Supplier Verification questions? Need Process Validation? Need help with environmental monitoring?
FSMA – Food Safety Modernization Act
It all started in 2011 – but all rules are final, and the rolling implantation has started. Need help with Produce Safety, FSVP, Preventative Controls for Human Foods, Sanitary Transportation?
Are you ready? Do you have a written food safety plan? Do you have written and fully developed prerequisite programs? Do you need compliance assessment and/or program development? Do you know you can pass, or do you need help getting ready to pass a regulatory or 3rd party audit?
GFSI compliance assessment and/or program development.
Are you ready to step up to the next level of food safety compliance? Need help knowing which system is right for your firm? Need help meeting the standards? Even GFSI standards are ever changing, modernizing to include FSMA requirements, need help with internal auditing to ensure compliance?
Labeling & NLEA
Food label regulations are complex, and the Nutritional Facts Panels are getting a facelift. 2020 and 2021 are rolling compliance dates for making sure the new Nutrition Facts Panel, which include 3 new declarations (Added Sugar, Potassium, and Vitamin D) are on your products. The Affordable Health Care Act requires nutritional labeling if you are a small chain of 5 or more restaurants. So, if you are a small firm looking to add or update the Nutrition Facts Panels on your labels, or if you are a restaurant looking to comply, we can help.
Does your team need help reviewing, developing or implementing programs to ensure your meeting industry best practices? Need an “extra company” representative to conduct supplier audits on behalf of your team, or to serve as a “surprise” internal/practice 3rd party audit.
Do you need help writing product specifications or developing internal practices to improve or ensure quality as you take your firm to the next level? Or do you need a sounding board to help you solve a problem or just to make sure you’re on the right track? Hire us for specific tasks or short term projects.
Supply Chain can be a critical a preventive control. Need help developing your program, or looking to verify that what you have developed is sufficient to mitigate your risk?
FDA’s FSVP requires the “importer” uses a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI) to review the food safety risks and food safety plan for both product and facility respectively, before the ship hits the water. You need to know the foreign supplier is producing a safe product that is properly registered and would meet the same food safety standards as if it had been produced here. Have questions, or need help with compliance?
