I currently work for a family company that produces pasta sauces. During our last audit we had a non-conformity relating to our mock recall procedure. The auditor said we must have a log of weights for each ingredient going into each batch of product, as well as the ingredient suppler lot numbers. We have always kept track of the supplier lot number, but the auditor mentioned we specifically lost points due to not keeping track of certain ingredients weights going into the batch. For instance, we know the ingredient weights of 7/10 ingredients, but for the 3/10 ingredients we do not know the weights as the owners personally mixes the 'family secret seasoning'. To be clear, we know every ingredient going into the product and their lot numbers. There are just a few ingredients where the owner does not disclose the weights so he can keep his family-secret private.
This is an issue for our owners as they want their recipes to be kept a secret for personal reasons of their own.
Does anyone have any idea how we can keep our owners secret recipe private, while also adhering to the SQF requirement?
