Services

I offer a variety of food safety plans and services

Whether you need a Gap Analysis or Food Safety plan, Food Saftey Mid Atlantic will provide a bespoke service that fits your food business’ needs.

  • Gap Analysis – A Gap Analysis forms a baseline of your facility’s food safety compliance. One of the first steps in designing a strong food safety program is to compare your current systems to the requirements of your regulators. A thorough food safety gap analysis is the starting point for goal setting and planning a long-term strategy. Our goal is not just to advise you on what needs to be done, but how you can go about it.
  • Food Safety / HACCP Plan – Food safety plans are a set of documents that show that you have thought about how to make your food safely. As your business grows, federal regulators and GFSI Third Party Auditors will require you to have a food safety or HACCP plan depending on the product(s) being made.  HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points and HACCP plans are required for products made from or containing meat and poultry, seafood, and juice. Food Safety Plans are part of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and are especially important for food that FDA regulates as part of the Preventive Controls for Human Foods.
  • Prerequisite Program (GMP) – The development of the prerequisite program requires the writing of GMPs, SOPS, SSOPS and development of relevant forms and logs. These would be based on the FDA’s GMP requirements 21 CFR 117 and will cover all areas of the GMP requirements: Personnel, plant and grounds,  sanitary operations, sanitary facilities and controls, equipment and utensils, processes and controls, and warehousing and distribution. In addition, this offers access to food safety support for 12 months.
  • Retainer Services – After completing one of my other food safety programs, I offer my clients the option to continue to have access to my expertise. This includes providing monthly phonecalls and quarterly audits.
