Hi everyone just need a bit of advice.
We are changing our old gas analyser as it is extremely old and the maintenance of it is costing a fortune. We currently test for oxygen (<1%) and C02 (25-30%). We produce a ready to eat product which is bacon, and I was wondering if we need to test for CO2?
We currently use a blend of 30% co2 and 70% nitrogen for packaging. To buy a gas analyser that only tests for oxygen is twice as cheap as one that tests for both CO2 and O.
If we test the % of oxygen alone would this be acceptable for BRC ver 7 and customers as long as it is justified correctly in our HACCP plan?
Thanks in advance
