Our most popular post was TACCP & VACCP demystified! TACCP and VACCP are terms that have been used a lot in reference to food fraud and have caused a lot of confusion. This Techni-K Smart Knowledge article explains what they mean and clears up the confusion. Vulnerability Testing, to test or not to test? When food fraud, raw material vulnerability first came out – the first reaction was to test everything! This obviously adds a lot of cost and therefore, we need to be careful about what we choose to test and how often we test it. In this post we looked at how to decide what to test and what can be tested. The article includes a video from Food Forensics which involves an interview with Professor Chris Elliott. Answers to the most common questions on BRC Vulnerability Assessment SQF and FSSC sites can learn a lot from the BRC sites that have already been audited against food fraud vulnerability. In this post, I go through the most common non-conformances from these BRC sites. By taking note of what caused problems before, we can try to reduce the number of non-conformances in this area for SQF and FSSC sites. Food fraud vulnerability workplan We produced a free vulnerability workplan for sites working towards their first BRC Issue 7 audit, where they would be audited against the food fraud clauses for the first time. We had amazing feedback about this workplan document – it’s simple to use, but really helps you work through the process logically.
