Our facility has recently changed processing direction with the elimination of most of the product line except for three products and the installation of a ton of new equipment. The process flow changed quite dramatically.
Based on the requirements for the process flow in SQF Ed. 8, 188.8.131.52, we have 66 process steps. The subsequent point, 184.108.40.206, states that all food safety hazards that can reasonably be expected to occur at each step in the process, including raw materials and other inputs.
Does this seriously mean we need to evaluate and document 66 process steps? This is going to be a 50 page document at this rate.
We have an audit soon however we just made all of these changes so surely we can't be expected to have an up to date FSP which meets all requirements because of this right?
