Storage and distribution are critical operations in the management of food supply chains. Handling, storage, and distribution are normally the responsibility of many persons and entities. Various dangers might befall products at various points of the supply chain, including purchase, storage, distribution, transportation, repackaging, and relabeling.
ONE OF THE PRE-REQUISITE PROGRAMS IN FOOD SAFETY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM IS GOOD DISTRIBUTION PRACTICE.
GDP has a direct impact on food product quality and safety. Food product contamination or infection would have happened during distribution, transit, and bulk storage prior to distribution. GDP has a significant rule in food traceability that may track the product's origin and chain of distribution and then assist food businesses in collecting contaminated or spoiled products from the market during a food withdrawal emergency.
GDP is meant to apply to all individuals and outlets engaged in any phase of the storage and distribution of food and agricultural goods, from the farm/facilities manufacturer's to the grocery stores that sell food straight to customers. This comprises all parties involved in the trading, storage, and distribution of food and agricultural goods, as well as manufacturers and wholesalers, as well as brokers, suppliers, distributors, logistics providers, traders, transport firms, and forwarding agents, as well as their workers.
