Supplier audits are one of the most effective ways to ensure the quality and safety of your ingredients, additives, packaging or services provided by contractors. Our expert auditors assess the supplier organization, food safety management system (HACCP), the sanitary conditions of their premises, equipment and facilities.

Animal Welfare Audit

Good animal handling practices are an integral part of quality systems in the food supply chain. Many leading food service chains, retailers and food manufacturers actively support such practices by requiring suppliers to undergo an Animal Welfare Audit.

Our audits are based on international guidelines for beef, pork, sheep, veal and poultry. Our animal welfare auditors are certified and undergo rigorous training in slaughter operations under the supervision of prominent industry associations.

Distribution Center Audits

Quality products depend on quality suppliers. Mérieux NutriSciences conducts audits of distribution centers to identify safety and quality issues in your supply chain and provide an additional layer of brand protection.

  • Receiving
