What is your opinion about the use of the Campden decision tree? I found the following article while giving the search "storage not CCP" :
At the moment we have "the outgrowth of microorganisms on processed products (pomegranate seeds, coconut chunks) during storage" as a CCP. It is like this since 2012 when the quality&food safety manual of my company was made by mine predecessor together with a consultancy company. My company is a service provider (repacking, relabelling, storage of fresh fruit and vegetables). The only thing that we do with the pomegranate seeds is income control, labelling, storage. During our last BRC/IFS Food audit, the auditor said that the CCP is well described and monitored, but it is more a CP than a CCP and maybe I can try to change the plan. We used the codex decision tree to determine the CCP, but if I use the information form the above article, then I can change the HACCP plan. Neither BRC or IFS say that we have to use the codex decision tree, only that we have to use a logical approach which might be facilitated by the use of a decision tree.
Unfortunatelly I've only seen this decision tree in this article and further I can't find something else about it.
