Implementing a strong, effective Preventive Controls Sanitation Program can be a daunting task. You must ensure that the entire facility is included in the program, from food contact areas and employee rest areas to the parking lot of the facility. Additionally, when you consider Good Manufacturing Practices, Allergens and Environmental Controls, the program becomes that much more intricate.
