Hello all I have a huge issue.
Forgive me if this is a dumb question.
We are SQF Food Safety certified for categories 19 and 31, (essentially a bunch of dry blends, and some dietary supplements). We have our yearly audit in the immediate future.
As a co-packer, we also make some personal care products. These items are made in dedicated rooms with dedicated machinery. The raw materials for the personal care products are stored with separation as well. This did not come up as an issue in past audits to my knowledge however, I wanted to ask you all for your professional insight. Doe the situation I describe mandate that I request an exemption?
As of this moment, none of our clients claim our SQF certification. And obviously, I would only allow those cable of doing so via categories 19 and 31 following proper procedures.
Do I have to request exemption in this situation?
Thank you for your help
