Third Party Audits & Inspection
One of the keys to any successful Food Hygiene and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) Auditing is to "know who you are buying from.". To do this, food suppliers' facilities should be inspected on a regular basis by our own auditors. This must be done in a comprehensive but cost-effective manner. All your facilities and processes, as well as those vendors and suppliers who service your food material, warehousing and transportations needs should be evaluated on a regular basis by auditors.
However, adequate, and up to date standards and requirements can only be verified through approved 3rd party audits. Combinations of these two methods are the best way to protect you against unexpected safety or quality incidents. At the same time, the process must be accomplished in a comprehensive, yet cost effective manner.
