Hi! I was wondering if anyone can share their expertise/experience with my question.

 

At the end of production, you have left over RTE packages that will not make a full box. Can I reopen the extra packages and repack the following day with the new sell by date? The reason why I am thinking we can do this is because sell by date on packages are determined the day it is packaged.

 

Please help

Technically, yes. What you'll need to consider: shelf life and traceability. If there were a recall, could your program capture those that were produced on another day and packaged the next day. Shelf-life - does holding the product over one day affect the quality of your item, my guess is no. So traceability will be your biggest consideration.

The easier thing may to be adjust your procedure so you know you have at least 1 mixed case at the beginning of the day, even better if that one went to the same customer 

 

You can do that, and it's easier than opening and reworking finished goods----do you cases have unique identifiers?
