Catering for Gluten-Free With Warehouse Segregation

The continual rise of food intolerance/sensitivities and food allergies around the world is frightening for warehouse managers. There is increasing vigilance in protecting consumers from allergic reactions. Adhering to these guidelines can prevent costly product recalls and potentially food allergy law suits.

Allergy compliance in food processing: the facts


Allergy issues are a serious matter in the food industry. Federal law says that food processing companies in every state and territory are responsible for protecting their foods from contamination that could cause allergy complications, as well as labelling their foods in a way that makes it easy to tell what kind of potential allergens may be present in a certain food.

For a food manufacturing or processing company, cross-contamination of foods can lead to severe allergic reactions that can have devastating health repercussions for consumers.

These situations can also cost your company money. In New South Wales, for example, the NSW Food Authority has the right to investigate breaches of food handling and processing guidelines, penalise offending organisations, and recall foods that come from businesses that fail to properly declare allergens on their labels.

WHY TRACEABILITY IS CRITICAL TO THE FOOD PRODUCTION CHAIN | REMAX

Traceability in the food production industry refers to the ability to track any food through all stages of production, processing and distribution. This includes tracking across the importation and retail steps of the production chain. This is achieved by having documented recorded information. At any point of the supply chain it should be easy for a business to trace contamination either one step backwards or forwards and thus possible to continue this process until the end of the chain. This element of traceability is crucial not just in finding the source of any problem but creating strategies to minimise the risk and fallout from any breach in standards.

With the Montreal Protocol restricting the use of Methyl Bromide, most businesses have turned to an integrative pest control plan that prevents as well as eradicates pests, as opposed to the old reactionary model of waiting until pests arrived and then exterminating them.

In this blog we provide an overview of the risks of operating a warehouse without a pest control plan and a simple guideline for a typical pest control procedure.
