Are you a food manufacturer in NYS? Many food manufacturers are nearing the required review of their food safety plan, or FSP.
In an article from Food Safety Magazine written by Jolene Cram, food safety project manager for the Tri-State Food Manufacturing Collaboration, which consists of Impact Washington, Idaho TechHelp, and Montana Manufacturing Extension Center, there are some actions you can take to optimize your food safety plan in preparation for this review.
- Keep your FSP from becoming too cumbersome by finding ways to simplify your hazard analysis process.
- Keep your FSP separate from other compliance programs.
- Convert your Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points Plan into a food safety plan.
- Maximize Preventive Controls-Qualified Individual (PCQI) training to support food safety culture.
