The Benefits of 3rd Party Auditing Services

Feb 21st 2014 at 10:43 PM

Food suppliers use a combination of two groups of food auditors. One comprises of their own inspectors and the other comprises of approved third party auditors. A 3rd party food auditing service maintains that their clients should strive to be in compliance with food safety regulations at all times and assists them in achieving this goal.

Below are the points that highlight why one should use a 3rd party food auditing service.

Keeps you Current
Food auditing services do not just inspect food supplier's facilities. In fact, using a food auditing service helps develop and implement new programs. These programs have instructions and guidelines on aspects like choosing reputable suppliers, quality assurance, compliance with the government rules and regulations, as well as evaluating the potential costs toyour business if a food safety incident occurs.

Provides Recommendations for Improvement
An auditing service can offer you its services when there are any consumer complaints or in case of food recalls.A auditing service is effective and professional in its work and leaves no stones unturned when it comes to auditing a huge establishment or a chain of establishments to determine what went wrong and to prevent re-occurrence.

A third party auditor can provide Supplier Auditing Optimization (SA0)which is a system devised by 3rd party food auditors that overviews your current programs and offers suggestions and recommendations for improvement. This can be done routinely.

Assistance in Choosing Reputable Suppliers
Purchasing food supplies from outside sources can affect your business performance since it all comes down to the safety of ingredients in the food industry.The best part about choosing third party auditors is that they offer to provide important information on verifying reputable suppliers. This may include suppliers in retail environments, fish, poultry, red meat, fruits and produce suppliers. This verification plan is the first stage towards a winning food safety program.

Access to Expertise
Hiring 3rd party food auditing services allows you access to experts such as food safety inspectors, consultants, and experienced epidemiologists/researchers whoare able to do a much more effective job than your own staff who may lack this expertise.

A 3rd party food auditing service not only works to discover potential problems in food processing but also manages to solve the existing ones in an efficient, economical and secure way. Running a food establishment can be hectic but it would be a mistake to overlook the opportunity to obtain assistance from an auditing company.
