Foreign Supplier Verification and Preventive Controls
Today’s Quality is Tomorrow’s Reputation
The FSVP requires that food importers verify that their suppliers are producing safe food. One of the most important verification activities is the periodic sampling and testing of shipments. It is an unfortunate reality of food importing, that food certified overseas for export to the USA is often not the same quality or product when received in the USA. Using FTS’s services to control, monitor and verify supplier compliance during entry into the USA will help to protect the public and reduce the risk of recall, rejection and claims. FTS is an integral part of your risk management system.
When a food manufacturer’s environmental monitoring activities detect a pathogen in a food processing environment, the manufacturer may be required to verify that effective sanitation has been employed. FTS can provide an independent environmental sampling and testing report to assure FDA that the corrective actions employed have controlled the problem.
