Why Allergen Management Is A Challenge

Why this is so important for you

Here are some of the typical situations you might recognize in your current Allergen Management system:

  • Your R&D and Purchase Departments decided to change ingredients and forgot about the change management procedure 
  • Your Supplier decided to change ingredients and did not inform you
  • Your Marketing or Sales Department decided to change the labels without a proper review
  • You are trying to cope with all the above mentioned changes to keep your HACCP-system up to date
  • New equipment is installed and now you can update your Cleaning Validation and Verification
  • Your overview of ingredients isn't updated with the latest allergens
  • You are facing challenges with cross-contamination

And there might be many other situations in your facility...

... the question is: How are you keeping track of all these changes? Is everything up to date? Are you 100% sure you are not heading towards a recall?
