Does anyone know the difference between a Finished Product Profile for a HAACP Plan verses a Product Description? And which should I be using? I have found several examples of both, but I am unsure which one I should be using.
For example: Finished Product Profile consists of:
General Product Information
* Description of product
* Intended use and consumer/customer
* Method of storage and distribution
* Traceability Information
Technical Product Information
* Water activity
* Packaging requirements
Food Safety Information
* Potential for consumer/customer misuse
* Inherent food safety hazards associated with this product
* Corresponding control measures/process step
The Product Description consists of:
Describe the Product
How is it manufactured
How is it to be used
General raw materials
Packaging and palletization
Storage and distribution
So my question is which one do I use for my HACCP as I am finding examples of people using one or the other, but not consistently.
FYI, we make rigid food contact packaging containers (we are not a filler - bottles only).
Thanks so much,
