Our Facility food defense plan include:

 

Facility Identification

Food defense team

Broad mitigation strategies

Vulnerability assessment

Emergency Contacts

Action plan 

My plan is revised twice a year 

 

 

My question is: do i still need to come up with an SOP for food defense plan?

 

Thank you,
