Food Compliance Guide Helps Producers Enhance Safety and Quality
Nšnikon, Switzerland. 3 November, 2011. METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to introduce its Food Regulatory Compliance Guide. The new Guide focuses on helping food producers meet the challenges of ensuring product safety in a global food supply chain. Each section addresses different aspects of safe food production, while the Guide as a whole is designed to help food producers worldwide better meet legal packaging and labeling requirements, minimize customer complaints, and ward avoid contamination episodes that tarnish company reputations and destroy profits.
The Guide's eleven chapters offer detailed information on tracking and tracing; formulation and batching; net content control; vision inspection; foreign body detection; hygienic equipment design; and calibration/control of measuring, monitoring and inspection systems. The Food Compliance Guide also offers insight into various global quality schemes and their origins to help producers determine which certifications will best meet their needs and, more importantly, be accepted by their customers, which can help protect and expand market share.
By publishing the Guide, METTLER TOLEDO aims to help food producers improve product consistency and quality via reproducible formulation and batching, and build a compliant product inspection program for higher food safety and process quality. Systematic tracking and tracing as well as consistent equipment performance verification, calibration and maintenance play central roles.
METTLER TOLEDO's goal is to help those with responsibility for production compliance be rewarded inside their organizations with smoother processes, more uniform products, and easier audit experiences-and outside their organizations with better brand image, enhanced corporate reputation, increased customer satisfaction, and the improved profits that result.
