I wonder if you could help me with this supplier/customer situation.
The company I am working in these days is a medium factory that belongs to a bigger company located 1200 km far away. Sometimes we bottle the liquid ( spirit beverage ready to be bottled) manufactured and sent by the big company.
The factory where I am working is implementing IFS requirements for a future certification.
Regarding the supplier management and assessment procedure I am not sure about how to manage this situation.
Shall I consider the medium company as a provider in which case I expect the big company ask me for food safety documents or shall I act as a client in which case I should ask the big company for food safety documents about the spirit beverage manufacturing?
Thank you in advance for your comments.
