Traceability and Controls to Reduce Risk and Recall

(Webinar length:  1hr 20min)


This webinar will cover the concepts needed to enable the use of commonly collected data into a meaningful system designed to meet FDA, supply chain, and company requirements.  A complete integrated food safety system design will be reviewed.  An understanding of how to integrate data that food supply chain members already possess will enable players to protect their companies--the food they ship and the customers they serve. 

Risk reduction, supplier control, traceability and minimizing recall damage are all critical components of any food safety plan.  Regardless of a company’s position in the food supply chain, dependence on those companies one up and one down the ladder creates liability and exposure no one wants to think about.

  • Legal Issues:  FSMA, FSIS, CGMP
  • Recall
  • Traceability Through Long Processes and Zones: (Farm, Blend Operations, Distribution, Picking Operations, Retail)
