We have started to subcontract some work to a sporking/ padding company. When I have looked into BRC/IOP requirements i need a procedure in place. Can anyone help?
I know i need to do a hazard analysis
:dunno:

Hi Kaz.

It depends very much on what part of your work you are subcontracting. If you were subcontracting your manufacturing the subcontractor would need to have all the hygiene and technical systems in place.

That said I don't have the standard to hand and I've no idea what sporking / padding is.

Simon

Hi Kaz,

Please explain what sporking/padding is? :unsure:

Regarding a procedure for subcontracting.
You have to asses the hygiene risks that come with this activity
Depending on the outcome you go ahead or take the measures that limit the risks to acceptable levels.


Have a nice day Okido

Just to explain
Sporking is inserting a spoon/fork into thermoformed salad pot
Padding is gluing a soak pad into the base af a thermoformed tray mainly used for raw meat products

Thanks Kaz, it makes perfect sense now. I guess you don't know what you don't know. :smile:

So I guess you are a Category A supplier (non food contact packaging). Have you decided what to do yet Kaz?

Surely if the pad comes into contact with the salad/fruit then this would require a full risk assessment and haccp even though its not your operation - padding supplier information in place, hygiene requirements for the people carrying out the padding, storage etc. etc. Foreign body control is probably the biggest aspect of this operation, though it would also help if the pads are mechanically placed in the trays which I would suspect, because then you can use routine maintenance checks as part of your considerations.

Dear All,

The pad is one thing as noted above.

How about the Glue ?? :x_smile:
