The Product Information Form is a key document in Supplier control. It was developed many years ago to assist businesses in collecting the information required to determine if both a supplier and their ingredients are safe and suitable for use.
It includes spaces for information on all aspects of the ingredient and it’s process.
It was originally used as a series of spreadsheets and has since evolved into an easy to use tailored application.
There is no legal requirement that any food business has to use the PIF to collect the information needed to meet the requirements of food safety, but most companies find using it worthwhile as it ensures that all the required information is collected and nothing is missed.
Version 6 was released in late 2018.
