Hello to all Can you help me to understand section 9 to which applies ?

 

We are a company that buys oil, stores it and sells it. But during storage a blending stage is carried out (i.e. mixing of several oils of the same quality but of different origins)

hi Hadir,

Blending is part of processing, so as per my understanding it does not fall under traded goods. See below definition of traded goods.

 

 

 

"Where a site purchases and sells food products that would normally fall within the scope of the Standard and are stored at the

site’s facilities, but which are not manufactured, further processed or packed at the site being audited, the site’s management of
these products is covered by the requirements in this section"
 
Thanks

It sounds to me that if you are blending oils together, this is a manufacturing process and is out of the scope of the Storage and Distribution Standard and should be audited instead or additionally to either the food, consumer products or possibly the packaging Standard, depending upon what the oil is used for.

Is this food grade oil for production or for foodservice use?  I am guessing yes but I don't want to be off base.

 

Foodworker is right, if you are blending food oils together to create a product then it is a manufacturing step not warehousing.

No it is for food use 
Yes, it is part of the transformation process

I think Brendan and I were seeking to clarify that whilst the original post is in the BRC Storage and Distribution section of the forum, the blending process makes it completely out of scope of the S&D Std and should be audited against the Food Standard.(Coincidentally and confusingly, Section 9 of the S&D Standard gives a few options where open food handling can come under the S&D Standard, but oil blending is not one of them)

 

If Hadir's business additionally sells on some of the oils without any blending, that part could probably be audited against the Traded Products section of the Food Standard, but it depends upon whether the site actually takes title to the goods.

 

If all the oil is blended, then the Traded Products section is not applicable.
