Do these challenges sound familiar?

Understanding the science behind supplier and raw material change

All new materials must be tested to ensure that existing safety procedure are suitable. When changing suppliers, you must be aware of the precise flammable and explosive properties of your new product, even if it similar

Retesting after blending and milling

Blending, milling and other processes during the production of your foodstuffs require the retesting of materials in order to decrease production inefficiencies via inadvertent incidents

Unaware of the journey between R & D and full production

Introducing new materials and ingredients to mixtures for new recipes has the potential to alter the chemical properties of an original recipe. A thorough understanding of all new materials and how this affects manufacturing risks must be understood

Unfamiliarity with explosive characteristics

From moisture content to cloud density and particle size, foodstuffs are amongst the materials most likely to cause catastrophic fires and explosions, so you must understand the whole range of factors that may affect explosion size or sensitivity
