ADV.07 Quality Systems for Product Management
You are launching a new tea product, “Wake the Dead Breakfast Blend” with hopes of getting distribution and having your product offered in retail stores throughout the US, and then the world! You have developed the blend, optimized the flavor, color and aroma and positive feedback is rolling in. You are ready to start producing your product, or you are ready to have someone else produce the product to your specifications. What is required for regulatory approval to sell your product and how can you ensure that your product continues to perform well as your volume grows and as your supply chain evolves? What will be required by your customers as your product enters distribution centers and larger retailers? The short answer is an established quality assurance program.

• What is required for regulatory approval to sell your product
• How can you ensure that your product continues to perform well as your volume grows and as your supply chain evolves.

Very valuable information for any entrepreneur desiring to establish a tea business. There are so many small tea companies who are not following regulations which can ultimately harm the consumer.

Hi Donna, this course was extremely useful in letting me know what all must go into setting up a tea business - it's not all artistry and cupping and requires very organized processes and knowledge of laws, compliance, regulations, etc. So glad I had the chance to learn more about this side of it! The comment I have for the class is that I think this class would benefit from lectures from the instructors in videos. The material was complex and difficult for me as a beginner to follow - the differences in HACCP tables and control point tables, in disposition and disposal plans, etc, might have been more clear if a teacher talked them out and explained them in video with examples. I really liked the use of video in the other courses I've taken. Thanks so much for another great class!
