Storage is a crucial pillar of the food supply chain that can ultimately impact both product quality and customer satisfaction. Warehouses must make extensive efforts to ensure they are up to code for operations. If proper health and sanitation procedures aren’t put in place, it can result in bacterial, fungi, rodent, or pest problems. The following are four principles for proper food grade storage:
· Pest Control: Pest controls substances should be in place at strategic locations around the perimeter. There should also be frequent inspections to check for possible infestations.
· Sanitation Schedule: A regular and well-documented schedule of cleaning sessions should be implemented to ensure that the facility is hygienic and up to code.
· Training Program: Employees should partake in periodic training programs for personal hygiene, food safety, and quality awareness.
· Lot Traceability: Your 3PL provider should keep track of their lot and date codes to ensure that the products are rotated properly.
