Ready-to-Eat food manufacture is a complex production environment incorporating automated and manual processes combining a wide range of ingredients of different sensitivities from a variety of sources. This complexity, the frequent line changes and the production of multiple finished products using the same process equipment bring with them the significant risk of cross-contamination by flavors, colors, allergens and microorganisms.
Stringent control and well practiced procedures are crucial to maintain established quality and food safety standards and prevent cross-contamination. Any breach of these standards can have costly implications from a compromise in shelf life to full product recall and damage to brand integrity.
