I have been reading the forums on IFSQN for the last 8 months, and it's about time I post.
I manage safety and quality for two distribution facilities. Our product is mostly raw produce with some dairy, eggs, and value added fruits and veggies thrown in the mix. My company picks the product up from the supplier, delivers it to our warehouse, and then distributes to mostly a food service and processor customer base. With that said, I am looking to have both facilities receive a GFSI certified audit in 2017.
I attended the Implementing SQF training, so I've been leaning towards the SQF audit scheme. It would make sense to go for a Storage and Distribution audit, however, one of the facilities has a light repacking operation. Does this mean that the facility with the very very small broken lot operation cannot receive an audit under SQF module 12? Does said facility need to receive a Module 10 audit instead?
Just to note, repackaging at this facility consists of box to box and box to bag movement of produce all within the same lot/ date code. We do not clean or trim product.
