Process Audits are frequently forgotten by most companies as they primarily focus on the audits for food safety and quality and not directed at the process that is being performed. Additionally, most auditing is performed by the quality department only and not through the utilization of a multidisciplinary team that would broaden the scope of the audit to include the processes. Process audits should be treated as seriously as all other audits as they will lead to the greatest areas for process improvement and help your company continually improve the products you provide to your customers. Process improvements also have very appreciated side affects which lead to not only higher quality, greater food safety and a better bottom line contribution.
