We distribute lots of food ingredients.
Many of these items are produced by co-manufacturers or are re-labeled (custom contract labeled) products sold by the manufacturer under other brand names in other countries.
We are the exclusive distributor of some items, and not the exclusive distributor of other items.
All that being said, we tend to guard the names of the manufacturers of the items we distribute rather closely.
Recently, there have been lots and lots of requests from customers for certificates of analysis to be direct from the manufacturer only. Do not put your letterhead on the COA. Do not transcribe the COA. Send the COA from the original manufacturer (or 3rd party lab).
Did I miss something in FSMA saying all your lab reports need to be from the original manufacturer? Is this some new GFSI clause that I am unaware of until now?
Any insight? HELP!!
