As I am in my last year of my bachelor of biotechnology I am writing my thesis right now.
The subject is to develop a food defense plan for a food packaging company (cheese).
One of the results would be to choose a fitting method (CARVER/VACCP/TACCP/etc.) for our company.
Therefore I would like to ask if there is anyone with experience who could give me some advice about how I could cover BRC/IFS/FSSC
For FSSC (iso 22001-1) they refer to PAS 96 which recommends the TACCP method.
BRC offers the decision tree for production zones which I would like to use as well as their biggest concern is the risk assessement of production zones.
The most important thing IFS asks is A food defense hazard analysis and assessment of associated risks shall have been performed and documented. Based on this assessment, and based on the legal requirements, areas critical to security shall be identified
Aereas critical to security, could I assume this is the same as the production zone risk assessement as I would use for BRC?
Please correct me if I'm wrong, and hopefully there is someone who could help me out
