Understanding Product Changeover
Publish Date: 20 September 2018
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.
