I have a small query and wondered if anyone faced similar situation before.
I am currently working with the small manufacturer to gain their BRC certification. And there is a quaestion to raise. One ingredient is bought in tiny amounts, and no suppliers want to work with Company in question, therefore the Company is buying the ingredient (milk based product) from the retailer. They are using 1.6kg of the ingredient in two weeks. and now the questions:
1. how to do the supplier approval, if the product is bought from the retailer? (options are to use only BRC certified supplier, find the BRC cert on their website, but no spec for the product available) and how to maintain the traceability (keep shop receipts and BBE date?)
2. the amount of the ingredient is so negligible and milk is not even detected in the final product, is it worth to mention the ingredient (not preferable option).
