This guideline aims to assist food manufacturers and provide good-practice guidance to help them


- manage product changeover effectively, but it does not specifically offer guidance on initial line


- start-up. Many of the controls discussed here are relevant for incorporation into line start-up


- procedures; however, a line start-up is likely to include additional activities, such as:


• sampling activities


• confirmation of process set-up (e.g. temperature checks)


• site glass breakage checks


• equipment start-up procedures.
