The pandemic may have shifted product demand or changed how manufacturers operate, but it hasn’t decreased customer or consumer expectations for food safety. Even in what is our ever-evolving new normal, food safety continues to be the priority for the entire food supply chain.
In response to the pandemic and to support the supply chain’s ability to meet this expectation, AIB International has launched Hybrid GMP Inspections. Just like our highly regarded GMP Inspection, the Hybrid GMP Inspection is based on our Consolidated Standards for Inspection and aims to provide retailers and consumers with assurance of Good Manufacturing Practices. Our innovative Hybrid GMP Inspection program includes a virtual desktop review of your GMP program, followed by an unannounced site inspection to be performed within six months of the desktop review.
This program can help manufacturers:
- Maintain Certification
- Uphold Food Safety Culture
- Avoid Production Interruptions
- Maintain Social Distancing
- Build Trust With Customers And Consumers
This process can be interactive and educational, with entire teams able to join and benefit from the process from wherever they are. It can also provide a cost savings, as there is one day less travel expense involved, while providing the same high standard of service and expertise.
With Hybrid GMP Inspections, AIB International will provide you with the virtual solutions to keep your facility operational and raise the standard for food safety, even during this new normal.
