Does anyone know of any food companies that are making their audits (government, 3rd party, or otherwise) available on their websites in their entirety?

 

I'm curious if there are any companies out there that have bit the bullet for the sake of transparency with consumers and been willing to share all findings with corrective actions, redacting confidential info like FDA does with 483's made available?

 

I couldn't find any on an initial google search, but my google-fu may not be able to get past all the other stuff that comes up when you search for audit results/reports. So seeing if anyone here knows anecdotally.

Hmmm, it looks like most companies who are doing this aren't consumer facing. They're upstream bulk ingredient processors or contract manufacturers. It would be interesting to find someone with a retail brand showing their audit results for transparency in a situation where an end-consumer would be examining it.

The company I work for makes a lot of food contact packaging.  We frequently get customers (brand name) asking for a complete copy of a 3rd party audit and our corrective actions, even though we are SQF Level 3 certified.  I have jokingly suggested that we should ask for the same from them.  Sometimes transparency means you have to tell your customer anything they ask about, but the customer does not have to reciprocate.
