Hello

 

We are a mid sized bakery selling a wide variety of breads, rolls, loaves, etc. We have an interesting new business situation that involves a fully cooked meat product. A customer has reached out to us asking if we can basically be a distributor for their products (pretzel dogs, ham and cheese pastries, etc.) They want us to handle the logistics of setting up truck routes, orders, etc. all of which will be handled through a 3rd party off site freezer warehouse. In a since these products would now become our products and sold through our normal channels thus broadening our product line. Basically they would be our co-packer. None of the meat products will come to the bakery. The product will go from the manufacturer to our 3rd party freezer to distribution. My question are: If this happens will this change the scope of our BRC audit? Will we need to consult USDA? Can we mix bakery products with meat products (both in sealed bags in boxes) on the same truck/pallet? I have no experience with meat so any help is appreciated. Thanks

Do you already do wholesale distribution?  If so then it should change your scope.  USDA would be involved due to the meat.

Can you tell me if you then fell under USDA jurisdiction by distributing the meat?

You wouldn't be a co packer, you'd be the distributor

 

The warehouse would be governed by USDA but not your bakery

 

Yes you can put meat and baked goods on the same truck 

 

Is the warehouse already covered by your BRC audit? If so, then you'd not change scope, but add another food category to your existing
