Good Day everyone,

I am just going through a BRC audit with a potential client and they have requested Product Specification sheets. We are a food supply company and not a manufacturer.

Can anyone advice where best to get these PSC's from please.

Much appreciated.

Hi Taff,

The manufacturer should be able to give you product specification sheets. What products are they and what country do you get them from? You need much more than product specification sheets to ensure that the products are fit for purpose, safe, legal of good quality etc. to satisfy your own due diligence. We can help you but you need to provide more information.

Simon,

Thanks for the welcome, I'm pleased to have found it.

I am supplying food in Ghana, West Africa. As your aware it is a developing country and normal standards are not even heard of here and we are one of the first companies to try to get accreditation. This is proving exceptionally difficult as the import market in Ghana is sporadic and diverse in it's make up.
it is impossible to force suppliers to provide documentation as sometimes they have the monopoly on goods/brands/products and there is no alternative supplier.
The work with suppliers is slow and frustrating.
Was wondering if there were generic product specification sheets. i.e product categories rather than branded products. e.g Cod fillet, beef tenderloin, etc etc

Any assistance will be gratefully appreciated.

Also if you have a template traceability policy?

Regards,

taff

Dear taff,

Here is one example (sultanas). Google will give you hundreds more varieties.

You (and yr buyer) must have a very good set of (mutually standardised) organoleptic facilities for evaluating your product. :smile:
