I support a beverage company that has no manfacturing; we contract out to copackers. We want to be able to provide a Food Safety certificate to our customers 1) to provide the confidences of the safety and quality of our beverages and 2) to protect the privacy of our copackers. We currently sell to the USA and Canada (with European supply in the next few years). Any suggestions for the certifying body and audit level? Thank you!

Hi Maria,

 

:welcome: to the forums.

 

This has been asked in the forums few times. Most of the third party (Food Safety) certification requirement is driven by your customer. It could be BRC, SQF, IFS, ISO or any other.

I would suggest to check with you customer, (preferably) the big volume customer and then choose a Certification

Thank you for the recommendation!

 

Is there a "level" for food companies that own brands that are only copacked?

The co-Packers need to get certed.

You might qualify under broker for aN (example) SQF certification.

As a customer of a beverage producer however I would be more interested in seeing that each Co packer is certified.
