Food & Beverage Safety Standards

It is critical to maintain Food safety during processing, packaging, storage, logistics (including cold chain), sale, and use. Conformance to applicable regulations is mandatory. Some are country specific such as the US Food and Drug Administration and the US Department of Agriculture; others are regional such as the European Food Safety Authority. Certification programs such as the Global Food Safety Initiative are sometimes used. Food packaging considerations may include: use of Hazard analysis and critical control points, Verification and validation protocols, Good manufacturing practices, use of an effective Quality management system, Track and trace systems, and requirements for label content. Special Food contact materials are used when the package is in direct contact with the food product. Depending on the packaging operation and the food, packaging machinery often needs specified daily wash-down and cleaning procedures.

 

Food preservation and packaging processes are key to ensuring the safety of the product. Manufacturers have to keep up-to-date with the latest trends in packaging or risk compromising the quality of their product and well-being of the consumer.
