Consultant’s Corner: What are Food Safety Audits?

Food Safety Audits are on-site inspections of facilities’ production lines and processes. During these inspections, our experienced auditors evaluate and assess standard operating procedures, records, control systems and employee performance. Companies participating in food safety audits receive complete technical examinations of their plant covering product integrity, consumption safety and regulatory exposure. These audits are an important tool for manufacturers to ensure their products are safe for the consumer and marketplace.
