Take one of our clients in the bakery, who have 3 months before a food safety audit, seeking help to meet food safety audit requirements. In addition, they also needed to prepare a Preventative Control Plan and Customer Protection Plan to meet and apply for Safe Food for Canadian license.

Some of their challenges include:

  • Neglected Supplier Approval Program and other pre-requisite programs (i.e. documented procedures not being implemented or documented)
  • Absence of food safety team
  • Key personnel turnover in multiple departments
  • The missing link between developed HACCP program that relies on poorly implemented pre-requisites programs
  • Re-establish food safety programs to meet customer audit and regulatory requirements, focusing on HACCP development, allergen and traceability program.
  • Educating and training key personnel to implement developed food safety programs.
  1. Systematic reviews of food safety programs/procedures
  2. Develop food safety team
  3. Establish a working HACCP program
  4. Re-establish food safety programs to support the HACCP program

  • Food Safety Team Development -putting food safety programs into a team approach
  • Establishment of Allergen and Traceability program from ingredient receiving throughout the processing to the product shipment to direct customer.
  • Establishment of food safety programs based on the client’s and best industry’s practices

In the process,

  • We set procedures for best food safety practices for the employees and the management team, removing the bad practices that may lead to product withdrawal and recall
