First timer here. First of all, let me thank you as you helped me through some doubts I had along the way.
I read the BRC clauses that concerns suppliers and also the interpretative guidelines, and couldn't find what I am supposed to control when I am the outsourced supplier.
We have a slicing plant where we slice finished products such as cured meat, and occasionnally we slice products for another manufacturer. They send us the products they want us to slice and we slice and package for them with their trademark.
My doubt is if I still need to "approve" the supplier. As I understand, we need to conduct a risk assessment for these products and have all the technical information such as ingredient list and allergens. I did it and it appears as high risk supplier, which means they should have GFSI Certification or to audit them. The problem is they are a small local producer, and don't have any GFSI certification. They didn't even sent us the specifications of how they want the product sliced, it is all made "by word" with the commercial dept.
Thanks a lot for your help!
P.S.: Sorry if there's any grammar error, I'm not a native speaker.
