We are currently a BRC standard warehouse and i banned all food and drinking from the warehouse full stop.
a bit about us
we are a 3PL compnay and all our products we store are sealed in a box with in a box or packaging.
we never open products in the warehouse to split down. The only place where we split products down is if any rework is needed
Health & Safety team have requested are we allowed to have drinks in the warehouse if they are in a sealed container if it is monitored and controlled
my first reply was a straight no as it will be abused ETC
what are peoples thoughts i am happy to allow this if correctly monitored but i have worries incase of an audit i will get a non conformance
i can add to HACCP do policy if needed
