Hello Everyone,

 

I want to start off by thanking this forum and all of you who share your knowledge.

 

I have a CAPA from my SQF desktop audit for Dry & Liquid Disposal regarding proper disposal of trademarked materials.

 

We are a co-packer, who does not own any brands or products. We co-pack single serve items (i.e.  sugar/spice packets found in restaurants, drink mixes, spice blends, etc.) and I'm finding it difficult to come up with a disposal plan for the film (rolls with over a million impressions that become the packets). The only thing I can think is contracting a certified shredder but that is really expensive.

 

Does anyone have experience with this?

 

I thought about getting ink bombs to ensure that trademark information is unusable.

Our packaging company used ink (bombs as you call them.)

We are also a co-packer and had this same non-conformance last year. We created a disposal form and have a box to describe how we disposed of the product to assure there will be no issues with the trademark. Some options like you stated are to contact a 3rd party company who would provide a certificate of destruction, ink as noted above or other means for example, we had a roll of film we needed to destroy and took a sawzall to cut through the film to ensure it was destroyed. Photo evidence was then provided in the report.
