Finished our 2020 SQF Ed 8.1 for Food Packaging Manufacturing audit yesterday. Postponed from last November at THEIR request. Scored a 98% with 2 minors: Both were at one of our storage warehouses a block away, zero deductions at our mfg building. One was a slight gap at the bottom, outside edge of an overhead door that was barely 1/4" but probably less. The other was for some debris that fell during a maintenance dept repair to the ceiling insulation over one of the rat lines... The scissor lift was sitting right there and the tape being used for the patching sitting on it, it was obvious the repair was in process. IMHO they were both borderline at best. The only good part was I told the auditor, whom I have worked with on and off for 12 years, that one day I would get him to award me a 100% on our audit. He told me in 9 years he's awarded 5 perfect scores and all of them were at new facilities. So now I'm trying to talk the owners into building me a new facility and warehouse... We'll see how that one flies! So I look at it as achieving 100% of the maximum possible score.

We have an SQF client that garnered 6 perfects in a row and that is not a new facility - just an extremely well maintained one and they listen to advice and suggestions. As to the two gigs I agree with the gap but not with the wip one.

That's us too. If we had the same auditor as they did we would have been at 100% for the last 3 audits too... :yeahrite:

Well actually, they had 2 different auditors during their first 3 year cycle and then switched CB's and had the same one for all 3 years including an unannounced. On the 7th year they had a black stain on ceilimg which the auditor wrote up as black mold and a damaged dock door that may have just happened. When they called me for advise I asked if they had a high low available and said I don't think we can so anything about the dock door but they needed to check the ceiling.

They got the ceiling point back cause it was a trial spot for a new ceiling sealent they were planning on installing and took the hit on the sock dooe. Thus thwy gor a 99 on the 7th year.

We just had our first IFS FOOD version 7 audit within our group!

Had to fill in for this locations QA Manager who has been sick with the virus for the last 2 months.
Got 11 very minor NC's. Half off them due to interpretations of the new norm.

 

So pretty happy with it.

 

Will now make sure we don't make the same mistakes with the rest of our locations :lol: .

My former employer got a 92 on the SQF audit last year.  Haven't heard what they got this year, they are due any time now, this year will be their 3rd audit.
My new employer received a SQF 100 last fall, just before I started. They've had SQF for several years.

From my observations, there is a HUGE difference in auditors. 

Former - dinged for no spill kit in the chemical cage and not enough containment pallets

Current - no spill kit or containment pallets  (same chemicals in both facilities)

Former- rope pulls for freezer doors 

Current -rope pulls had to be covered with cleanable material - which caused a problem with the pvc pipe got caught on a forklift and closed the door while the forklift was going thru the door...still waiting to get the door fixed.

Former -MUCH cleaner facility 

Current -more concerned about putting out as much product as possible and falls short when it comes to cleaning

Hi Miss Frankie,

 

Thks above.

 

IMHO, "100" simply means the auditor missed something and/or (depending on the specific situation/report) possibly a lot of "somethings".

" IMHO, "100" simply means the auditor missed something and/or (depending on the specific situation/report) possibly a lot of "somethings"."

As an SQF Auditor I had two facilities that graded at 100.

Did not miss a thing.

Hi Glenn,

 

It's perhaps more a criticism of the Standard than the Auditor.
