As all businesses operating within the food industry would know, developing efficient, compliant food safety practices is a never-ending process. A businesses processes need to be constantly reviewed to ensure everything is continuing to operate as it should, that all new changes are seamlessly integrated into the existing operations, that all potential food contamination risks and identified and controlled, and so on. Part of what makes this process so challenging is that the contamination of just a single area of the food supply chain can compromise the integrity of the entire operations, and detrimentally impact the business in several ways. For this reason, it is crucial that businesses develop efficient, compliant food safety practices. To help companies with this, Anitech will be hosting a free webinar on what they can be doing to prevent food recalls. This article discusses four reasons why businesses should attend.
- Case study examples will help businesses better understand this issue.
The webinar, titled Preventing Food Recalls, Protecting Your Business, will be hosted by Sabina and Renita, Anitech’s food safety consultants. They will be providing an informative discussion about some of the common food contamination risks that can lead to food product recalls, through a discussion of real-life case study examples, where something that went wrong within the food supply chain resulted in a food product recall.
They will offer insight into the chain of events that led to the food contamination, and what could have been done differently to prevent this from happening. By hearing case-study examples, attendees will better understand some of the common and not-so-common food contamination risks that can threaten the integrity of food supply chains, and what steps should be taken to prevent this from happening.
- You will understand how Food Safety certification protects your business
A key insight to come out of this webinar will be how certification to recognised food safety standards can protect companies from these food contamination risks. Specifically, the speakers will explain how certification to the ISO 22000 Food Safety Standards helps companies develop a Food Safety Management System that protects the safety of their food across their entire food supply chain. Sabina and Renita will explain what a food supply chain is, and how companies operating within the food industry must guarantee the integrity of their food products across all stages, from its growing, manufacturing, transporting, storage, and sale.
They will explain that through ISO 22000 certification, businesses can develop effective routine auditing procedures of their operations, to ensure everything is performing as it should, that food safety risks are identified and controlled, and that the businesses food safety practices align with their regulatory obligations.
- Attendees can ask our experts any questions they may have.
Our webinar will be comprised of two parts, for the convenience of attendees. The first thirty minutes will be an informative seminar, where our experts discuss the broader issue of preventing food recalls, and what businesses should be doing to protect their operations. Following this, there will be a ten-minute Q&A session, where attendees can ask any food safety related questions they have, and receive an answer by a qualified specialist.
Businesses may be wondering about the ISO 22000 implementation process, what are some common certification challenges they may face, what they should be doing to ensure their external trading partners are also following compliant food safety practices, and so on. By attending this webinar, you can ask our experts any food safety questions you have, and receive an immediate response.
- A problem-solution model will make potentially difficult concepts more accessible.
Our food safety consultants will utilise the problem-solution model when discussing this issue. This means that every potential food contamination problem they discuss will be followed by a discussion of an effective solution to the matter, by discussing what action companies can take to effectively address the problem, and ensure their operations is not significantly impacted.
For example, they will explain how the challenge of thoroughly identifying all potential food contamination risks an operations is exposed to can be effectively addressed by utilising the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) principles. They will explain how the HACCP principles helps businesses identify the full scope of food contamination risks their operations is exposed to, and take clear steps towards preventing, eliminating, and minimising them. By discussing food safety challenges through a problem-solution model, businesses will be in the best position to understand the scope of food contamination risks they may be exposed to, and what steps need to be taken to mitigate the risks.
