Greetings and salutations to all my fellow SQF friends.

As most who work with SQF know, it's originally a product of Australia. Occasionally some of the language in the code is geared toward a slightly different usage than what might be written by a North American. One example I'm having trouble understanding is the term "shell product."

In the SQF Guidance document, pre-requisite Section 6.6 (under "What do I need to do?") it's written:

"The Maintenence Manager must ensure they are notified by all contractors engaged to complete work in any shell product handling area."

Can anyone clue me in to what a "shell product handling area" is? Are we talking about nuts, eggs, Shell oil?

Thanks in advance!

Hi esquef,

Are you looking at SQF1000 or SQF2000? Sorry I don't have an answer but 'shell product handling area' to me would also indicate seafood?

Terrabell,

This is from the SQF 2000 Guidance Document (Page 82).

Hello Esquef, as the SQF standard is generic and applicable to all food products then it doesn’t seem right that it would be specific on shell products. And why do contractors need to inform maintenance manager on just this issue. Very strange...

Can anyone crack this hard nut? :smile:

Regards,
Simon

Yes I think I've cracked it :smile:

As there is an egg guidance document this is almost certainly a "typo" /cross over between the two guidance documents. It should just read "product handling area"

Ah, I believe that's the answer:

SQF 2000

Guidance

Guidance for Food Sector

Category 12 – Egg Processing

Good cracking Tony!!
