A food importer
The client needed a quarantine solution in a food-grade warehouse due to a product recall of a contaminated food product. As a result of the recall, they had 1,500 pallets of this contaminated food product that needed to be quarantined.
FW Warehousing came to the rescue. Our solutions team was able to quickly and efficiently design and implement a plan for quarantined storage in one of our AIB Superior food-grade rated facilities. The necessary space was allocated in this food-grade warehouse for a quarantine room large enough to accommodate the 1,500 pallets of product. The space was cleared out. The FW maintenance team constructed a wall to fully enclose the new quarantine room and provide access to the space via a locking door. The work was expedited and in short order the facility was fully prepped and available to receive the contaminated merchandise. The tainted goods were immediately transferred to the quarantine room where they were securely stored, separate from all other products housed within this warehouse.
The rapid response capabilities along with its agility and flexibility allow the firm to tailor custom solutions to the needs and requirements of its diverse customer base. With more than 60 years of experience in the management of food-grade warehouse distribution facilities, we are well-versed in mock recall testing and can handle lot, batch and manufacture code product tracing should it be required. Similarly, we are familiar with the necessary procedures to implement quarantine solutions, as we did in this case for this client.
