Above and beyond SOP’s
Certain SOP’s are required in all facilities, but in many cases the company should have more SOP’s than required in order to show that their company is above and beyond compliant, and there is proof that they are taking steps to avoid risk.
Knowing what to do if a cultivator sells you tainted product and what approvals you need to sell your product in dispensaries could help your company name stay out of press releases, avoid recalls, and protect your business.

Shelf Stability/Audited Product Approvals
In some states these evaluations are required to sell certain products that are High Risk Products (Inhalers, suppositories) or if they are a Potentially Hazardous product (Oils, tinctures, capsules, Beverages, etc).

Avoid costly shutdowns, holds and recalls by contacting Allay Consulting to find out if your company is required to have these evaluations.

HACCP/Food Safety Plan
HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) and a Food Safety plan are both a systematic preventive approach to food safety from biological, chemical, physical and radiological hazards in production processes that can cause the finished product to be unsafe. These plans are a proactive approach to reduce health and safety risks through preventative controls.
Corrective Action Preventative Action (CAPA) is a written plan that establishes a process to eliminate causes of non-conformities or other undesirable situations. Non-conformances are identified after systematic evaluation and analysis of the root cause of the non-conformance, then corrective actions are implemented and preventative actions are established to ensure the issues are not repeated.
