Quality: Food Safety Audits

When ordering chemicals and ingredients from a vendor, it is imperative to understand the standards behind the finished product. How pure is the product? How often is the machinery cleaned and maintained? Are workers properly trained? Your Orlando ingredient supplier Bell Chem’s facilities, employees, and products are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

To maintain these standards, Bell Chem is regularly audited. To ensure every step of the food supply chain meets or exceeds expectations, D. L. Newslow and Associates, Inc., a third-party auditor, measures Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and Codex Alimentarius guidelines.

What do the regulations require? Quality approaches: carefully and systematically checking and calculating precise amounts of ingredients. The entire chain of supply is affected by quality approaches, so any ingredients or chemicals delivered to Bell Chem must also meet standards and guidelines before incorporation into the Bell Chem supplies you know and trust. Likewise, all equipment must be clean and free of dangerous mechanical problems and threatening contaminants. Food-grade ingredients are purer and safer since they are created for human consumption. The standards these ingredients meet are stricter than other non-consumable products and quality controls are more difficult to maintain. With its multiple regulations, Bell Chem exceeds expectations consistently.

Audits determine that every phase of production, from raw materials to finished product, are followed without any shortcuts. Bell Chem understands that audits are more than a certification process; their quality methods of production keep their employees safe and give their customers trusted, reliable ingredients that do not vary from batch to batch. Following safety and quality guidelines means fewer errors and recalls, which is better for Bell Chem’s customers. Prices are also affected since less time is dedicated to reacting to errors since mistakes are determined proactively. Along with quality manufacturing processes, GMP certification also includes:

  • Bookkeeping methods, ensuring more stable prices;

  • Hiring of qualified employees only;

  • Sanitation and cleanliness of all areas of production;

  • And proper complaint management.
