Assessing Error Vulnerability for Food Integrity
£55.00 – £75.00 (plus VAT)
Assessing Error Vulnerability for Food Integrity takes the pioneering methodology from the previous publication “Assessing Threat Vulnerability for Food Defence” and builds on it, to provide an approach to assessing the errors that may occur during the manufacturing process which may compromise the integrity of the product.
The methodology meets and also exceeds the current requirement in some standards such as British Retail Consortium (BRC), where the requirement for an error assessment is purely limited to cross-contamination or loss of identity of products such as organic or Halal. It also meets the more detailed customer codes of practice that require a wider and more detailed assessment to be completed.
If you need an integrity plan to meet your customer codes of practise & control errors in the manufacturing process then this book is your solution.
Written by the experts…
Written by Kassy Marsh & Adele Adams to meet the retailer requirements for food integrity. This book provides you with a simple step-by-step method.
Our method meets the basic requirement of BRC (clause 5.4.6) and also the more detailed requirements, laid out in UK retailer codes of practice.
Product integrity is a basic expectation of all consumers when purchasing food. If the packaging makes a claim, then the consumer clearly expects the food inside the pack to meet that claim. Ensuring that claims on pack are adhered to has always been a legal requirement, however the industry is having to move with the times and not only meet the legal requirements but also adhere to their moral obligation to the consumer.
Our methodology assesses the errors that could compromise the integrity of the product, such as cross-contamination of non-organic product with organic, or cross-contamination of species.
Assessing errors for food integrity differs from assessing threats for food fraud. Threats are caused intentionally, whereas errors occur unintentionally. The two systems work together to provide protection through the supply chain from threats, up to the point of delivery to the site. The error assessment then picks up the unintentional issues that could occur during the manufacturing process.
As with our methodology described in ‘Assessing Threat Vulnerability for Food Defence’ this methodology we have developed also has strong links to HACCP so it provides something you are familiar with and will aid your understanding.
If you need an integrity plan to meet your customer codes of practise, to control errors in the manufacturing process, this is the book for you! The process described has been assessed against detailed retailer codes of practise and meets their requirements.
