We are performing our annual suppliers documents review and I have few questions:
1) As we are supplying finished product to Costco, all our suppliers (including packaging materials for the finished product) for Costco products must be 3rd party HACCP certified.
The majority of our packaging materials suppliers provided us with a certificate that states: "The facility was inspected by a qualified AIB International inspector under the requirements of the AIB International Consolidated Standards for Food Contact Packaging Manufacturing Facilities."
The certificate has only the issue date, but doesn't have an expiry date. I attached an example of the certificate.
Can it be considered a HACCP certificate?
2) We requested a Chemical Migration testing analysis , but only few suppliers were able to provide it. Isn't it a regular request in Canada?
Thank you and Happy Holidays!
