This is why food safety audit certificate is important! One of the sales strategy that I learn is to use food safety audit certificate to convince the buyer on the level of food safety program a food manufacturer or processor acquire. It is true that food safety program certification is one of the most essential proofing tool in the industry. When I source for ingredients, food safety certification is what I seek for as well.
The good and bad thing about globalization are there will be product you seek for but you have many options of where to purchase from. Most of the manufacturer can present a food safety audit certification, which one is the best? How do the consumer know?
Who know it the best? The auditor that give a passing grade or an A+++? The answer is no one except the manufacturer's food quality assurance management team, not even an auditor.
So, how good is your food safety program? What grade would you give your program?
