Good Distribution Practices (GDPs)

Aligns with FSMA requirements

COURSE DETAILS

Good Distribution Practices (GDPs) describe the minimum standards that a distributor must meet to ensure that the quality and safety of food is maintained throughout the supply chain.

There are incidents that can happen during the distribution of food that can affect the food safety. Product can be physically damaged, temperature abused, exposed to unsanitary conditions and numerous other undesirable conditions that can and do result in increased risk of microbiological, chemical, or physical hazards.
