Product Description

Direct Recall Costs and Personal Injury Claims Can Cost You Millions. A Well-Written Contract Can Protect Your From Liability and Help Recover Losses from Your Suppliers.

With vastly improved national network of food safety surveillance capabilities, an increasing number of problems associated with food products (from pathogens to allergens) are being identified, and more products are being recalled. For this reason, if you process or sell food products, the question is not whether your company will someday be forced to issue an expansive recall, the real question is when.

If you are forced to announce a recall, your company could suffer millions of dollars in losses from the direct recall costs alone. In turn, your customers may sue you for their own commercial injuries (which could total millions), and injured consumers could bring significant personal injury claims of their own.

Whether you are sourcing product from suppliers, or selling product to customers, a well-written contract can protect you from liability from your customers and recover your own losses from your suppliers. A little planning and some savvy contract negotiation today could save your company millions tomorrow.

This Webinar by Shawn K. Stevens will help you to understand how your supplier and customer contracts can help you avoid litigation. You will learn how an effective contract can limit claims and help to recover all costs and attorney fees.

In this program, you will learn:

  • Risks your company faces in the likelihood of potential recalls
  • The real potential costs of recalls to your company when they do occur
  • How to effectively negotiate and craft your supplier contracts to shift your own exposure to suppliers or recover your losses if a recall occurs
  • How to effectively negotiate and craft your customer contracts to protect yourself from any customer or third-party recall-related claims

Who should attend

  • Food company owners and high-level executives
  • Corporate food safety directors
  • Quality assurance managers
