Food Industry Second Party Audit

SGS’s 2nd party food audits enable you to accurately assess the performance of your suppliers and industry partners against your specific requirements and/or industry standards.

We perform customized 2nd party food audits against the following criteria:

  • Co-packer/Licensee/Supplier/Vendor Assessments – we monitor your trading partners throughout the supply chain to ensure adherence to your contractual agreements and other requirements
    This means that your products meet your quality, food safety, environmental, occupational and social responsibility standards at every stage of production
  • Audit against your code of practice – we monitor your network to ensure compliance with the values and procedures defined in your code of practice
    This helps to protect and sustain your brand and reputation

Our customized 2nd party food audit solutions help your business succeed by being an independent set of eyes and ears that can monitor operations. We ensure that your organization and partners are maintaining, and improving, the standards you have specified – wherever you are in the world.

Our global network of auditors has the in-depth, specific industry and business knowledge relevant to your organization. Upon completing your audit, we provide you with an accurate assessment of how closely and consistently your quality standard benchmarks are being met. We also identify ways that your organization's networks can achieve the level of efficiency you require and design schemes for continuous improvements.

SGS is a respected leader in 2nd party food audits, with expertise and experience in all phases of the food chain from the farm to the store shelf.
