Batch production records

Depending on the scope of your business, batch records are one of the most important verification documents for an inspector and certifier. We recommend taking the time to develop a clear strategy, such as using a production check-off list, to trace and record which ingredients were used each product batch.

How are batch records used in an organic inspection?

Batch records allow us to match that amounts of organic ingredients on hand are sufficient to produce the amounts of organic product sold. The approach is similar to documentation required for the purpose of a food safety recall.

What information should be included in a batch record?

A batch record should include batch numbers of your products, lot code numbers for each ingredient, and the total amount used in the designated batch. The ingredients must match those listed on your product formulation sheet, master ingredient list and master product list.
