STEP 2: PLANT ACCREDITATION
Prior to approving a new plant – Tradex executes a stringent, standards-based audit of the supplier’s facilities.
If a plant meets inspection protocols we proceed. If a plant scores a marginal grade – we recommend corrective actions. If a plant chooses to comply with mandates – we will reassess upon completion.
If a plant fails the post mandate inspection – they are eliminated as a potential supplier.
Standards include: HACCP plan, documentation, water/ice quality, safety, cleanliness, sanitation systems, manufacturing practices, pest control, equipment and infrastructure.
