Hello,

Where can we find guidelines to proper thawing procedures for incoming ingredients that are packaged in large scales?

Ingredients such as frozen fruit purees.

 

 

Aside from Food Safe 1 & 2 that are more geared towards food service and consumers. The guideline do not work for food processors or manufacturers.

 

Thanks!
