Produco food safety consultants build and implement your Food Safety Plans and Quality Management Systems.
We reduce the red tape by liaising with and understanding governmental agencies.
Our food safety consultants ensure your products are compliant with all legal requirements and meet regulations for products destined for Australia and overseas export markets.
We do this through our extensive experience and knowledge of HACCP, regulations, the legal framework system, and have built trustworthy industry relationships over time.
HACCP (Hazard Identification and Critical Control Points) is a management system that uses a systematic, preventative approach to making safe food.
An effective Traceability system ensures product can be tracked one step forward and one step back at any point in the supply chain.
So, what’s an FSP? If you process or manufacture food from animal products, it is likely you’ll need an FSP.
Risk Mapping. Problem Solve sessions. Workshops.
Regular supplier audits will give you the assurance that your ingredients meet the standards and regulations you expect to confidently manufacture and export high quality, safe food and beverages.
The reality is real-life business critical events do happen. The key is being prepared. Prepared means having a documented system in place, good stock control systems and the team ready to perform their roles when the recall arises.

The Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment, the Department of Agriculture and your state authorities all play a role in Australia’s legal framework for processing animal products into food, such as meat and dairy products. These agencies require all animal products that are traded and used are fit for their intended purpose. These national and state authorities determine for the production of certain animal materials and products that you must operate under a Food Safety Plan (FSP).
An FSP is a documented programme that a food business develops to identify and explain how known risks such as chemical, physical, biological and other risks will be managed. FSPs are based on the principles of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP).
As a food business owner, you are responsible for developing and maintaining your FSP regularly.
That’s where Produco can help you. We know the legislation and how to implement the legal requirements into your business processes. Once you have developed and documented your FSP, it must be verified. Depending on your state or territory, on a regular basis by your local authority. Produco will take care of the process, engaging with you in a timely way, and working with your project deliverables.
Our experience lies in our vast knowledge of the regulations, which change frequently and vary greatly across the different countries you export to.
Our ability to interpret which regulations are relevant to your business and products is our strength. We will save you precious time and money and allow your business to operate safely while delivering on your promises to your customers.
Compliance costs are made up of the requirement of 1). Initial start-up costs and 2). Regular verification costs (ongoing).
Regular audits will ensure all biological, chemical and physical hazards are captured accurately in your FSP and HACCP Plan. Our food safety consultants provide internal and supplier audits.
The cost also depends on the number of regulations you need to meet, the size of your business, and whether you export or operate solely in the domestic market. Costs can be separated into two parts;
