What is Food Safety in Commercial Manufacturing?
Why Is Food Safety Important?
Foodborne illnesses, toxicities, and related injuries can be detrimental to consumers’ health and can even prove fatal in extreme cases. Poor food safety measures can invite legal troubles, recalls and sabotage your brand’s reputation. Each year in the United States over 48,000,000 people, or roughly 1 in 6 people, get sick from a preventable foodborne illness.
Depending upon the regulatory jurisdiction your business falls under (such as FDA, USDA, or state & local health departments), you will most likely need a food safety system. This requires training of key individuals that will manage the system as well as designing, creating, and implementing the system elements such as procedures, records, and training.
Commercial Manufacturing Services
Most commercial manufacturers are required to have an annual third-party audit or other certifications in order to become an approved supplier for their clients. Some manufacturers may seek out certification to distinguish themselves in their industry and provide a point of differentiation from their competitors. We believe our clients are our partners-- our consultants remain available long after the third-party audit or regulatory inspection to keep your operation on track and continually enhance your program.
