My company is working on a contract to co-pack soup. Our client is requesting to use specific ingredients which are hard to obtain from a HACCP certified supplier. They are selling their product to retailers who do not require HACCP certification. My company got HACCP certified a few months ago. We haven't had a CFIA audit yet.
I am wondering if we follow proper segregation & sanitation practices, if it is ok to use ingredients from non HACCP certified supplier? I will create SOPs for GMP practices however, do I add this product to our HACCP plan? Are we even allowed to do this? I can;t find specific information on this topic.
