Product Description

Food Safety is No Longer Confined Within the Four Walls of Your Facilities. It’s Time To Manage Food Safety Risks Within Your Supply Chain. Learn How!

Historically, food companies have focused their food safety resources to ensure that production within the four walls of their facilities was under control. But recent outbreaks and recalls have illustrated that you can’t always control food safety within the confines of your production or packaging facility: you need to be aware of, and actively controlling the food safety risks that you inherit from your suppliers.

This presentation by expert speaker Dr. Jennifer McEntire,The Acheson Group will help participants in getting the steps to understand, evaluate, and manage food safety risks within your supply chain. This process can help protect brands—and moving forward, can also be used to achieve regulatory compliance with the Preventive Controls Rule and Foreign Supplier Verification Program stemming from the Food Safety Modernization Act.

The first step will be to understand who is in the supply chain, given practices like “spot buys”. The second step is to evaluate the risk of the ingredient/product, as well as the risk of the supplier, and lastly, to consider the appropriate strategies to manage this risk. The session will also help you understand when FDA direct facilities to have “supplier control” in place, and explore the tools that are available to systematically evaluate supply chain food safety risks. You will benefit from the diversity of strategies shared in this session to help you manage supplier risk, including audits, testing, and some additional non-conventional approaches.

Get answers to questions such as:

  • What are the various factors that go into understanding supply chain risk?
  • How do you justify the “gut feel” that a supplier is of concern?
  • How do you balance the risk of the supplier against the inherent risk associated with the product?
  • How can these risks be communicated to others within the company?
  • What are the most effective ways to manage food safety supply chain risk?
  • What are the Latest updates on Preventive Controls Rule 
  • What are the Latest updates on Foreign Supplier Verification Program
