First off, I apologize if I posted in the incorrect forum, I wasn't quite sure what to nest this under.
I work for a small bakery manufacturer. Recently we were approached by a new broker, hoping to land us a contract with the US DoD, specifically with having our products in military barracks (not retail commissaries). Currently we are not certified by a GFSI auditing scheme, which the broker states would not be a problem. He also stated we would not need to be audited by them since the food is "going directly to the troops and not base commissaries for retail purchase" - his exact words, which I found a bit odd.
Does anyone have any experience or insight when it comes to the requirements of selling to the US DoD? As a smaller manufacturer, I want to be sure we would not be biting off more than we can chew.
