The Right Tools Enable Long Term Success
You have a HACCP plan in place. You know where your problem process areas are, and everything in your process is in control—at least from a food safety standpoint. Now, one of your suppliers sends you a key ingredient laced with Salmonella. With a food safety management system (FSMS) in place, there’s a good possibility this ingredient wouldn’t have left your supplier’s dock.
An FSMS is more than just a HACCP plan; it’s much more far reaching. With an FSMS, your facility is better prepared for FSMA and able to prevent a catastrophe in the first place rather than putting out fires when something goes wrong. That’s because an FSMS gives you the tools to stay on track and help with the laborious task of recording all the information you may need at a moment’s notice for regulators and auditors.
