Suppliers using Safe Quality Foods Institute (SQFI) auditing to meet Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) audit requirements struggled with the intensely manual process of maintaining all required records and making them available to onsite auditors. Their binders were thick, documents were expired and the staff needed to manage the ever-increasing list of required records kept growing.
