How Confident are you in your Supply Chain?
Supplier audits form the basis of having a strong customer-supplier relationship. They determine if your current suppliers performance meets business operational standards.
Supplier Audits not only give insight into where your ingredients are coming from, but more importantly show what conditions they are produced under. Regular supplier audits will give you the confidence that these ingredients meet the standards and regulations you expect as a food producer in New Zealand.
Scheduled auditing your suppliers of ingredients and packaging will go a long way to ensuring your trusted NZ brand is protected. As the global supply chain becomes increasingly more complex, the risk of food fraud such as adulteration, misrepresentation or substitution for economic benefit is a very real threat in today’s world. Auditing provides assurance that your ingredients consistently meet the specifications you require by checking against service level agreements (SLA’s) and comparing past audits to check for changes or issues and identify potential future issues.
