We fill portion cups with jams and juices. Currently we stage a box of unfilled cups right next to the cup hopper and refill cups as needed. Our facility is not big and we do not have space to separate the cup reloader from the filling stage. I am worried about cardboard contaminating the filling stage. How can I remedy this to appease auditors? Would just removing the cardboard box before staging it by the cup reloader suffice? Would a risk analysis be suffice?

You unbox - placing the cups into an approved non-cardboard container and put that one next to the machine.
