We have just completed our annual SQF ED 7.2 Level 3 certification audit and received a minor for not having a refrigerator in our lunch room. We have an air conditioned breakroom and provide shelving units for the employees to store their lunch coolers. We also have refrigerated vending water, pop, milk and juices in additional to sandwiches, pizza etc..
We have been SQF Certified Level 3 since 2009 and this is the first time we have ever taken a minor for this in the 9 years/26 audits I have attended. I have had three plants certified this year and only one plant received this non-conformance all three audits were within a month of each other however two plants had the same auditor and the third plant had a different auditor (plant that took the hit).
Any input you can give on this would be appreciated.
