Premise: Recent cases of contaminated food products and widespread recalls have resulted in a growing awareness of, and concern for, the foods that reach America’s tables. As a result, food safety has become a critical area of concern for consumers, government regulators and the companies whose success depends on the consumer confidence. From increased regulatory requirements and heightened public awareness to growing consumer unease with threats against the food supply and everyday products, companies cannot risk ignoring this important challenge. The challenge is clear- focusing on food safety programs that protect your brand and your consumers is not an option; is it a key to survival.
1. Global food safety trends
2. Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and its impact both in the US and Globally
3. Protecting your company and the consumer at every point in the food chain requires sweeping changes across the food chain:
c. Hazard Analysis
d. Allergen Management
e. Supplier Management (track and trace)
4. Discuss how can companies improve their visibility across their end to end programs, identify opportunities to increase efficiency and reduce costs by assessing current governance programs and aligning them with pending changes.
