A chain is only as strong as its weakest link, and in the industry of food processing and production, failure anywhere along the chain can trigger a huge range of consequences including product recalls and consumer deaths. Ensuring compliance with social responsibility, trade security, sustainability, health and safety, and product quality assurance are challenges faced by organizations of all sizes and types. As the global network of food suppliers, producers, distributors, and retailers grows, so too does the risk.
Pressure to monitor and protect the entire supply chain is constantly growing; there has never been more need for transparency in such endeavors. Clearly demonstrating to clients and fellow competitors alike that your supply chain management is sound in theory and in practice is key to performing well and avoiding disruption in production.
An effective and comprehensive supplier auditing program is the key to improving business and reducing risk by managing suppliers. Intelligence-based and proactive analysis is required to develop such a program, and ensuring coordination between different internal organization divisions will avoid redundancy to increase clarity in direction for your organization as a whole.
A vital way of preventing this type of situation is the regular use of PJRFSI Supplier Audits, using best industry practices and the experience of the PJRFSI team to review all aspects of every division of your organization from pest control and sanitation to foreign material control and record keeping.
