Food Safety Supply Chain

For Food Processors, Suppliers and Co-packers can be your weakest link, with food safety issues impacting your brand, shaking customer and consumer confidence in your products.  The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act) rules for enhanced record-keeping with more responsibility for supply-chain documentation falling on the U.S. Food Processor makes coordination of food safety practices up and down the supply chain an absolute “must”.  Given the recent COVID-19 pandemic’s disruptions of the entire world-wide supply chain of food and food ingredients, effective partnerships all along the supply chain are imperative for ensuring Food Safety for our consumers. This panel discussion delves into potential controls and solutions to some of the more common challenges around Supply Chain short-falls and problems. The following topics that will be covered in depth include:

  • Identification of serious potential food safety problems coming from Suppliers & Co-packers
  • Elucidation of potential controls for common operational challenges due to food safety issues coming from your supply chain
  • Suggestions for Best Practice solutions for creating effective partnerships with your supply chain & co-packers
