We are a salmon processing plant in Norway, and the raw material arrives in styrofoam boxes. These type of boxes are used by all salmon slaughter houses in Norway to pack the salmon in. As most of us will suspect, styrofoam as packaging material brings certain risks of physical contamination due to it braking quite easily and consists of small pieces.
In the new BRC issue 8, there is a new clause (18.104.22.168) which states that procedure shall be in place to prevent physical contamination of raw material by raw material packaging (e.g. during debagging and deboxing procedures to remove the packaging).
Anybody having some good suggestion on how to handle this, besides a control on the integrity of each and every box?
