Creating an "Approved Supplier Program" as a Prerequisite for a Successful HACCP Program
Hazards come from two places; we add them or we receive them from our suppliers.
What should we expect from an effective supplier management program? Who is ultimately responsible for the safety of the products & materials received from our suppliers? How confident are we when we justify the control of a hazard as being through our approved supplier program? What percentage of recalls is traced to supplier issues?
HACCP requires that you:
- Identify those suppliers critical to food safety and quality
- Perform a hazard assessment and define the hazards
- Identify the potential risk and significance of the hazard
- Justify our decision based on facts, scientific information and historical data
Learn how to use your existing supplier data to:
- Automatically manage supplier compliance issues
- Continuously improve supplier performance
- Better manage supplier audits
When: Thursday, July 10, 12 - 1 PM (EDT)
