I work for a confectionery manufacturer and we store some product temporarily in boxes on bakers sheets prior to final packaging. We have food grade documentation for these items, but we do not trace them or have these suppliers on our approved list. Should we? We have only been tracing and approving suppliers for food and packaging ingredients that end up in the finished product that goes to the customer. (we do also have contract services on list). Also-an auditor once asked if SQFI was on our list of contract services. Our CB is because they supply auditors that are on site....but we never put SQFI on the list. Thoughts anyone?
Thanks so much!
a. YES you need to do that.
b. No, Miss-call by the Auditor - SQFI is not a direct service provider - your CB is as we would be if you had us as your consultants.
