I was wondering if you could help me with the below,
How do you select an external manufacturer that will produce your own branded products? What would the requirements be if is regarding a low risk product?
I’ve listed the following:
-GFSI scheme certification and full audit report. If Non Conformances raised in the audit, corrective actions and preventative plan also requested.
- If manufacturer hold other certification full audit report also required.
-Summary of HACCP and food safety plans.
-Supplier approval and raw material risk assessment
--Microbiological lot testing program for the product
-Certificate of analysis for all batches produced to ensure all food safety standards (microbial, for example) are met.
-Certificate of conformance for all batches produced to ensure product specifications are met.
-Good Manufacturing Practices established for food products (as a minimum quality standard)
-Quality Assurance Program and Standard Operating Procedures in place to ensure compliance with regulations and GMP.
Having in mind the products supplied will be low risk, is it compulsory to perform an audit?
thank you in advance everyone!!,
