The emphasis on proactive management of issues that could cause a food safety hazard, per FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act, requires firms to improve controls for a variety of issues at all levels. One hot-button concern that continues to wreak havoc in the industry is that of pathogen contamination. EAS offers best in class assistance with developing SOPs for ensuring a hygienic and sanitary manufacturing environment, training to get employee practices in-line with expectations and, through our alignment with Certified Laboratories, a trusted partner for pathogen testing for your surfaces and ingredients.
