Want to optimise your audit compliance to GFSI approved food safety standards? Then keep reading...
Did you know that cleaning tools have been identified as a major source of contamination - 47% of the cleaning tools sampled as part of a major, UK Government funded study were found to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes (CampdenBRI, 1990).
Whether this result was due to the poor hygienic design or poor hygienic maintenance of the cleaning tools is unknown but GFSI food safety and quality schemes, including BRC and FSSC22000, recognise that both of these are essential in order to minimise the risk of product contamination and now include specific sections in relation to this.
This presentation summarises the GFSI audit scheme requirements, with regard cleaning tool selection and maintenance, and offers some top tips on how to optimise audit compliance in this area.
