Food Defense / Food Safety

BRCGS/AIB International Certification for Storage & Distribution

Certified Food Managers and HACCP-Trained Personnel

The ACS Staff is thoroughly cognizant of, and practices, all pertinent aspects of food safety and food defense.  With certified Food Managers, HACCP-trained personnel, and strict compliance with USDA, FSIS, and third party audit compliance, food defense remains paramount to our success.
Be food safe logoACS incorporates 24/7 interior and exterior security/surveillance, the Genesis Refrigeration Monitoring System to insure constant vigilance in cold chain management, and continuous food safety training for all personnel. Off-site monitoring services provide intrusion, smoke, fire and ammonia alarms with established notification processes.

As a true public warehouse and 3PL, we subscribe to C-TPAT standards for importers/exporters.  Risk assessment practices are conducted on a regular basis.

ACS is totally fenced, and temperatures are recorded by calibrated electronic data loggers capable of being downloaded and transmitted based on 15 minute recording intervals.  All products received are scanned with calibrated infrared temperature measuring devices and temperatures are recorded on the physical BOL.  Any product received which is outside the stated temperature requirements will initiate immediate client notification with requests on exact procedures to be followed before product is received.

All damaged or “hold” items are maintained in segregated and isolated areas for each operating warehouse.  All inbound and outbound trailers are inspected for structural integrity, proper reefer settings, general cleanliness, and odors. Exceptions are recorded and the client will be notified prior to carrier release. Unique ACS seals are placed on all outbound carriers carrying product from ACS custody, and seal numbers are recorded on the outbound BOL.

All ACS employees are screened prior to hire with multi-state background checks, drug testing, physicals, and prior employment references.

All carriers and visitors are required to sign in/out and must be escorted by an ACS employee while on premises.
