Any business that introduces food into the commercial food supply chain can ultimately fall under the jurisdiction of the FDA, Food and Drug Administration and need to be compliant with the FSMA, Food Safety Modernization Act.

A coffee business's written food safety plan would be required to include the following:

  1. A hazard analysis that identifies and evaluates the known and reasonably foreseeable risks for a coffee processing, roasting and packaging facility.

  2. Preventative controls must be identified and implemented in response to any risks identified in the hazard analysis to prevent or significantly minimize said risks.

  3. Monitoring procedures must occur, be overseen and documented.

  4. Verification activities must occur to ensure that preventative controls are effective.

  5. Corrective actions must include a written recall plan.

FSMA Qualified Individuals prepare and oversee this entire process for a company.

Numbers 1 and 2 are what is refered to as a HACCP Plan, (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points). Numbers 3 and 4 are part of GMP, (Good Manufacturing Procedures). Number 5 is required for FDA and USDA.

Our FSMA Qualified Individual Training compliments nicely both the curriculum of the SCA Roaster Certificate and the SCA Green Coffee Certificate.
