I have two questions....I am newly assembling a SQF food safety plan at a facility that had little to no documented food safety.
We are a dry pulse facility so for example peas, lentils, beans, and wheat are some of the products. We clean them and package them, that's the easy part. We also treat the seed for them to be sold to farmers for planting nearby. The treated seed is all done outside and doesn't use the same bins or equipment as the food processing so the question is-- on my scope of the food safety plan do I include that seed treatment part?? Does that part get audited then? It essentially has nothing to do with the food processing but it does take place at the same facility so does it need to be documented? 2nd question, how does one search forum topics on this website?? I hate to ask a question that may already have been asked but I also hate to scroll through all of the forum topics to find what I am questioning. Thank you all!!
