Hi Guys


Not sure if this is the correct forum for this question...........


We hold Organic Food Federation certification for warehousing. Over the last few years we have been in a battle with OFF over identification of organic products. We use SAP system and our traceability labels state organic in the product description. However, our auditor and previous auditors are requesting we identify/highlight our organic products differently i.e. different coloured labels, stickers and even magnets above the bin locations.


Our issue is that our pick locations and storage locations move on a daily basis and we do not have a separate area for organic and non organic products. Pallets are binned into a location that SAP knows is vacant. Does anyone else had or having a similar issue and how have you managed to resolve?


Many Thanks

Hi Sarah,


Why don't you have a big green 'Organic' label that you stick on the front of the pallets?


Kind regards,

Agree with Tony.  That is how we handle organic product in our facility.  A big organic sticker on the pallet.

Dear Sarahr78,


It must not be that hard to highlight the word organic, use another colour label, or add a label with the word organic, as suggested by Tony.

Some one has to stick your pallet labels on the bin. it will not take much troubles if this person has to add a second label or highlight the word organic.

Kind Regards,

Madam A. D-tor

All our organic pallets are highlighted with pink trays, pink dockets and are stored in the organic only area with pink labels. Never had an issues and its enough to cover you.
