Q: WHAT IS A SCHEDULED PROCESS FORM?
A: It is a complete evaluation of how a food product is made, including all the steps of preparation, ingredients and packaging. It also evaluates and dictates formulation, critical control points, processing steps and storage.
Q: DO I NEED A GTIN?
A: Not necessarily. You can purchase a “Global Trade Item Number” (GTIN) that is a unique UCC Company Prefix from GS1 US that exclusively controls the assignment of numbers. This may be a better option if you are planning to sell your products to a distributor or a retailer and it may even be required from them. Check with the purchaser to confirm. Another option is to purchase an individual UPC code from EZUPC, which still gives you a code to use but your products would not be assigned a specific UCC Company Prefix.
