I am really hoping someone can give me advice over contract manufacturer.
The original owners of my snack food company are two brothers --one took the business into a retail store that produces and sells on the spot, the other brother chose direct to consumer route with a large production plant (both in the US). They both sell under the company name; however, the recipes, packaging, product names, etc. themselves are different.
My plant had an SQF gap analysis recently and we were told to "review the contract and agreement" with this retail store. If the scope of our certification is limited to the products produced at the plant, would conducting audits at the retail store be enough to suffice?
I would really appreciate any ideas, experiences, and advice.
