Hello. I'm back in to the food industry and trying to catch up with current rules. What's a good tool to use to do a risk assessment on ingredients so I can quickly complete this non-conformance from our audit.

Thanks

What guidance/regulations do you all have to follow. FDA or USDA besides your third party audit.

If you are FDA regulated, Appendix 1 in the Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls for Human Food: Draft Guidance for Industry document would be helpful.

 

Ingredient specifications would be good.

 

Supplier assessments also are a good way to determine if some ingredient may be higher risk simply because of who it is manufactured by.

 

You can also of course pay for a service like Horizon Scan.

Hi Marshall,

 

Happy NY !

 

HS seems primarily oriented towards Food Fraud related safety aspects and particularly via the supply chain ?

 

Although the owner seems to have affiliated fingers in all kinds of FS pies.

 

@ Sherlez - you are asking a disarmingly simple question but the (general) answer unfortunately tends to the exact opposite. :smile:


Kind Regards,

 

Charles.C

Happy New Year to you as well, Charles.

 

Horizon Scan does indeed incorporate Food Fraud, but it also can look at specific ingredients and suppliers for "incidents" other than fraud.

 

I did a demo a few months ago and specifically asked to look at our supplier of Cinnamon. The results that came back showed 9 fairly recent instances of products from this supplier that had "incidents" (not necessarily fraud). This alone would have me rate the risk with the ingredients from them being higher. 

 

I did some screen grabs from the demo and forwarded them on to our purchaser and asked "Were you aware of this?"
