Why it’s important! An added value that Compass and Foodbuy bring to our clients is the close connection that we have with our product suppliers. As part of that connection, we require all program distributors and manufacturers to have a recall action plan. What we see is notices that come out as soon as they are available so we can get any recalled product out of service as soon as possible.

Why it’s important! Food safety is crucial in our business. In cooking, we follow a process called Hazard Analysis of Critical Control Points (HACCP). This process involves checks and controls during important points in the recipes to ensure we are not taking any unsafe risks in our food preparation.
