ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL AND MONITORING PROGRAMS
Dedicated to Helping our Clients
Protect their Brand
Environmental contaminants have proven to be the cause of food contamination leading to numerous recalls. Not only is controlling environmental risks in the food facility and being able to demonstrate effective control through a robust environmental monitoring program (EMP) a critical part of a food safety program — it has become a regulatory requirement under both the U.S. FDA and USDA/FSIS, as well as Canada’s CFIA. For all of these, a well-thought out, risk-based testing program will serve as a critical verification tool for your company.
