PLC and Food Standards

Dear Mr. Khab,
Assuming we are talking about a "food product" here, the PLC phases are similar to any other product, however REGULATIONS are much tougher than in other industries.
The most relevant phase to your request is the product development phase. A food product consists of a recipe, defining the composition and the manufacturing process. The composition is the break-down into components and sub-components.
Your food product has to comply with the food standards of your target country / region. Therefore, you create a set of specifications, which you send to your suppliers and manufacturers. For each component, sub-component, etc the supplier has to provide the specification document and valid certificates.
Based on that, you create your packaging and labelling (nutrition values, allergen information, bio classification, etc) which is a crucial part to avoid recalls. Hope this helps as a starting point.
