We are a 3PL with no exposed food product. All material is customer owned RTE products or bagged ingredients such as flour. We are struggling with the food fraud assessment for SQF. The free templates we have found online seem too complicated for no more than we do. Does anyone have a "simplified" version of what they used to satisfy this requirement? Brandon

Look up VACCP it is designed like HACCP so you create Food Fraud mitigation strategies and correction procedures based on your process.

Hi bsearls, To carry out food fraud assessment it is important to understand what makes the ingredients in your food supply chain vulnerable. You can adopt the following steps for food fraud assessment:

1. Identify the ingredients in your food supply chain

2. Identify the factors that can make your ingredients. These factors may be 

    a. value of ingredient

    b. supplier fraud history

    c.  supplier location 

 " you may add additional factors"

 

3. Carry out the risk assessment.

4. Determine which is ingredient, raw materials is significantly vulnerable to food fraud.

5. Determine the existing controls.

6. Determine proposed action plan to mitigate the significant risk

7. Implement the action plan.

8. Monitor the effectiveness of action plan.

 

This is a ongoing assessment. Keep it simple. Hope this helps. Other contributors may add their inputs if I've missed out any points.


Regards

 

Roshni

Hi bsearls,

 

I believe yr expectation/quest is correct.

 

I think there have been a few previous SQF threads which had similar queries to yr own but offhand I could not locate.

 

Maybe try a little searching.


Kind Regards,

Before you get into looking for something you don't need that can be basically an NA FOR A 3PL... look at this...

We have a 3pl as a client. They are just a pass thur, minimal separation of cases of sealed items, no touch on food products and all items are purchased by the client... they are exempt from this requirementvand have done two audita thua far without a hitch.

We did write the reasoning for the exemption and we did a risk assessment to show as to why we did not need to compky with this requirement... this may apply to your compant as well.


Kind regards,
