Hello, we are SQF certified. We are currently in contract negotiations with a very large customer for nation wide sales. Everything is moving forward but I had a question about storage and distribution.
Currently we release ownership with our product at our loading dock doors when it is loaded onto a truck. With this new customer they want to send our products to a 3rd party storage and distribution center.
We would retain ownership of the product until it is sorted and loaded onto a truck leaving that center.
What would I need to do to stay within compliance?
Do I need to do anything since they are a contracted company?
I am assuming many other types of products are held at this facility. Do I need to address this in HACCP plans, Food safety plans, risk assessment, Food defense plans etc?
Does this affect my product flow?
I have been researching but I am only coming up with partial answers. I want to make sure that we remain in full compliance with FDA and future audits etc. I would greatly appreciated any guidance you could give me. Thank you so much for your time
