MetricStream, in association with AIB International, hosts a webinar on food safety with an emphasis on preventive approaches to delivering safe and high quality food to consumers

Rising food safety and contamination incidents have impacted the financial performance, brand, reputation, and customer loyalty of leading food and beverage organizations. Producing and providing safe and high quality food to consumers is a challenge today, especially in light of mounting regulatory mandates and new emerging risks across the supply chain.

It is essential for organizations to develop a food safety program in order to proactively prevent food safety incidents from occurring, rather than just reacting to the incidents. A proactive approach should include identifying, assessing, and managing risks within the organization and across the supply chain.

Creating a system with stronger checks and balances can ensure food safety and quality, while also keeping pace - and ahead of - complex regulatory requirements. Timely and precautionary measures can decrease the likelihood of safety incidents and product recalls. Adopting a proactive approach to food safety can help organizations enhance their brand image and instill confidence among consumers.

Join Stephanie Lopez, Vice President of Food Safety Services Innovation at AIB International, and Keri Dawson, Vice President Industry Solutions and Advisory Services at MetricStream, as they share insights on they key components of a preventive food safety program and approach.

Key aspects of food safety that will be covered during this webinar include:

  • Preventive food safety programs based on best practices such as Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) and Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls (HARPC)
  • Risk identification and risk management across the supply chain
  • Creation, validation and verification of preventive controls
  • Deriving value and benefits from a preventive approach to food safety
