Food businesses who are certified against the BRC Food standard or other GFSI benchmarked food standards are required to have a supplier assurance systems in place.
Typically these will entail supplier risk assessments followed by the completion of supplier self assessments by all suppliers followed by food supplier audits of high risk suppliers.
Once all suppliers are approved it is necessary to track supplier certification and ensure that all certifications are maintained up to date.
Historically food businesses managed all of this manually which is an expensive and time consuming task.
Progressive food manufacturers have been adopting QADEX Vision to improve supplier assurance and reduce costs.
A classic win win.
