Commercial Audits

Commercial food, bottled water, and ice production facilities wishing to sell their products to DoD are inspected by Public Health Command veterinary personnel to verify compliance with regulatory, industry, and DoD requirements.  If the commercial food production facility passes the audit, it is placed on the Worldwide Directory of Sanitarily Approved Food Establishments for Armed Forces Procurement for specific food products that DoD wants to buy.  Appropriated and Non-Appropriated DoD food, bottled water, and ice purchasing facilities use the Worldwide Directory to ensure that the food fed to US Service Members and their families is safe.

 

Questions regarding Commercial Audits and DoD Approved Food Sources may be directed to U.S. Army Public Health Command, (USAPHC) DoD Approved Food Sources at 410-417-3725, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland or USAPHC, Army Institute of Public Health (AIPH), Food Protection Program, Aberdeen Proving Ground.
