We are supposed to be moving to our new facility at the beginning of next month. There is still a bunch of construction going on, mostly offices and installing equipment and that sort of thing. What are the requirements for storing finished product in the new freezer? We would like to do that sooner rather than later, as in, my boss was asking me yesterday when we can do it. We are bursting at the seems in our current facility and moving anything at all over would really help us. We already use Frozen storage facilities but sometimes we need to store our product onsite. Should we have our pest control set up first? The freezer is already built and operational and far away in the warehouse from the rest of the construction. The freezer is clean and with the door shut should be free from any construction dust. Am I missing any key things?
Any suggestions? This new building thing is new to all of us and we don't want to do it wrong.
If it helps, we are SQF and will continue to operate under the code while we move and work towards certifying the new facility.
Any pointers and tips on on how to make this move work would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
