Sampling plans are an important tool to verify the effectiveness of a company's Food Safety Management System (FSMS)/Quality Management System (QMS). Several types of sampling plans exist, with each its specific goal. A good understanding of sampling plans and a transparent science-based method for the development of sampling plans are important for a well-functioning FSMS/QMS. 

What can we do for you?

Ciboris develops tailor made risk-based sampling plans for food companies towards microbial, chemical, physical hazards and allergens. Risk-based sampling plans are an important tool for agro-food companies to verify the functioning of their Food Safety Management System. The application of a risk-based sampling plan has multiple advantages:

  • Limitation of amount of samples to be taken by focusing on high risk products
  • costs are reduced, because important problems are discovered in an earlier stage, so that preventive activities can be applied sooner.
  • Our transparent and scientifically based methodology helps you to make informed decisions
