Traceability in Food Manufacturing
A few weeks ago, I spoke at the Innovations in Food Safety Conference in Harrisburg, Pa. I was featured in the "Profiles in Innovation" session which highlighted mini-keynotes from three different perspectives in the food supply chain.
It was an exciting time to be presenting at such an event with the recent passage of the Food Safety Modernization Act. Never before have manufacturers been held to such standards—by the FDA and consumers alike. My presentation demonstrated 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.
What is your organization doing to ensure food safety throughout the supply chain?
