InfinityQS Vice President to Speak at Innovations in Food Safety Conference
Doug Fair, InfinityQS’ vice president of statistical applications, delivers keynote address on emerging food safety issues.
Chantilly, VA - March 24, 2011 - InfinityQS International, the leading provider of quality control software solutions, today announced that Doug Fair, vice president of statistical applications, will deliver a keynote presentation at the Innovations in Food Safety Conference in Harrisburg, Pa. on April 1. Fair will be featured in the "Profiles in Innovation" session which highlights mini-keynotes from three different perspectives in the food supply chain.
The presentation, titled "From Cradle to Grave: Ensuring Product Traceability," will focus on the importance of being able to track data across the full production spectrum from raw materials to the finished product. The introduction of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has presented a strict set of guidelines on manufacturers and made the possibility of a recall even more costly. Fair will address ways to achieve complete traceability and will explore the tools available to provide greater manufacturing visibility to ensure compliance.
"Never before have manufacturers been held to such standards—by the FDA and consumers alike," said Fair. "My presentation will demonstrate the importance of being able to trace the origins of ingredients, even back to the original farm, to improve food product quality, avoid expensive recalls and comply with all FSMA regulations including HACCP, SSOP and others."
