Good Morning -
Ok, I need some clarification in regards to what SQF will require in regards to Raw Materials and Packaging. We are actively working towards becoming SQF certified in early 2015 and are working on a GAP analysis of our current programs vs. the SQF code.
What is an absolute must in regards to what would need to happen with raw materials and packaging? Does a standard letter of guarantee and product spec cover the bases or do you have to have COA from the vendor? Or do you have to test incoming ingredients?
