Internal Audit is designed to add value and improve an organization’s operations through a systematic disciplined approach to evaluate and validate the effectiveness of the system.
Many food companies have increasingly outsourced their external suppliers and internal processes audits to qualified personnel. This will reduce the need to maintain full-salaried employees and enhance productivity.
SUPPLIER ASSESSMENT PROGRAM (SAP) AND AUDIT
Supplier Assessment Program is a critical pre-requisite program for food companies. The ability to assess the suitability of suppliers to your organization based on pre-established requisites are important areas of concern in order for your organization to produce consistently safe food. A rating system can also be established at the end of the program to provide a quantitative trend analysis of the performance.
SECOND PARTY FOOD SAFETY AUDIT
As part of the Supplier Assessment Program (SAP), consistency in your suppliers’ ability to supply safe product is critical. In the past, buyers of these products have an in-house assessment team set up for the purpose. In this modern age of out-sourcing, cost savings could be achieved by appointing qualified personnel to undertake this role on behalf of the buyers.
CALIBRATION SERVICE FOR CHILLERS AND FREEZERS
The need to ensure all the Chillers and Freezers in the premise are performing at its utmost capabilities is critical for all food handling operations. Without constant monitoring and third party verification, any malfunctions will result in temperature abuse, resulting in product spoilages and product recall.
