I'm hoping to gain some insight on labeling requirements for bulk processors. We are an almond processor and sell our product in 2200lb bins/sacks or 50lb boxes/bags for further processing. With regards to FDA and BRC what are the minimum labeling requirements? We already print company name and address, weight, product (almonds), unpasteurized/pasteurized, country of origin and description of product (size and type). I'm most interested in the size and type area. We have a customer requesting that we do not include this information. I feel like this would be okay, as the product as a whole would still be included (almonds) just not the specifics of it? Perhaps we're over thinking it, but better to be safe I suppose. Also, I realize this could depend on the destination; EU, Australia, etc. Still can't imagine the type and size being a legal requirement. Any references?
Thanks So Much,
P.S. We just passed our first BRC audit with an A (7 NC's). Should have been a AA, couple obvious oversights...next time for sure. Thanks to all of you contributing to this network. It was a huge help in preparing for the audit.
