The audits help determine compliance with the firm's standards, procedures and wishes.
As a result of the audit, a certificate of conformity is issued to suppliers who meet certain quality standards. In the later process, it can be added to the "Approved Supplier List" in accordance with the company's quality procedures. Supplier audits are of great importance in terms of helping the company to maintain and increase its quality standards.
In particular, food businesses opened after the pandemic should question whether their suppliers also comply with the rules they comply with. In this sense, companies that carry out COVID19 hygiene audits and receive certificates should also audit and evaluate their suppliers in this respect.
