Full traceability and audit trails are critical to ensuring products meet customer demands. The responses to every QA or CCP check are date, time and operator stamped so that both ingredients and products can be tracked back through the process very quickly to generate quick responses to internal or external audits.
QA and CCP checks are generated by the technical team from a secure database. As checks are created or amended, they are instantly available for operator responses on mobile and touch panel devices without the inherent difficulties associated with paper control documents.
When a factory audit takes place, this automated system allows auditors to retrieve all the information they need easily and efficiently with the knowledge that it is accurate.
