I'm having hard time understanding the BRC auditor remarks with regards to our "suitable for vegetarian claim". According to him "In house monitoring validation for Vegetarian claim is required."
Our product is coconut water packed in tetra packaging. I was thinking of doing a validation approach using: scientific or technical literature references wherein I will demonstrate that all ingredients we used are from plant based origins and I will also do an assessment of processing lines that no animal origin items are being used during processing.
Is this enough already? Or do you have any additional suggestions?
Thank you... Your response is highly appreciated.
