Environmental Monitoring Program(EMP)
Enviromental Monitoring Program(EMP), is through the monitoring of production area and its surrounding environment, to ensure that production environment is not contaminated by pathogens and spoilage organisms, thus as a measure to ensure product quality and safety.
As an effective method of quality assurance, EMP has been widely used in many food companies. EMP can be used as an advantaged tool to identify the high-risk areas of microbial contamination, and to determine the effectiveness of disinfection control. The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requires monitoring of the food processing environment to verify the effectiveness of pathogen controls in processes where a food is exposed to a potential contaminant in the environment.
With years of rich experience in environmental monitoring service and an excellent teamwork, Mérieux NutriSciences China food science center is able to target to provide factory on-the-spot inspection, EMP selection and sampling services according to customer requirement and QA assessment on product risk, to tailor effective environmental monitoring programs for the factory. Sino Silliker can help you realistic understanding of the factory environment risk, and taking corrective measures, so as to minimize product contamination issues and prevent recalls.
