How to Use Technology to Reduce Risk

for Food Supply Chain Hazards

A FoodChain ID Webinar

1 March 2022

Raw material hazards such as microbes, pesticides, allergens, heavy metals and foreign bodies account for over 50% of all food recalls ‒ but most food companies struggle to identify and reduce these “upstream” risks. 

In this webinar, the speaker reviewed current trends in raw material and ingredient risk. The webinar shared insight into technologies to identify and respond to these supply risks, allowing food manufacturers to prioritize their organization’s highest priority food safety and food fraud threats affecting business every day.

Viewers will:

  • Review current trends in supply chain food safety and food fraud hazards
  • Understand the U.S. Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requirement to identify “known or reasonably foreseeable” material hazards in your supply chain
  • Examine technology tools to manage and mitigate food safety and food fraud hazards
  • Review technology that can support GFSI-mandated fraud vulnerability assessments
