The globalization of ingredient sourcing has made it more challenging than ever to assure the safety, quality and traceability of your supply chain. And the stakes have never been higher – under FSMA regulations failure to implement an effective supply chain risk management program could subject food companies and their officers to significant liability and even criminal charges.
HorizonScan provides food safety professionals with a comprehensive, scientific basis for assessing supply chain risks. Developed by Fera Science in the UK, HorizonScan is a web-based information service with a suite of proprietary Risk Assessment and Supplier Check tools tracking current and historical global food fraud and contamination issues in near real time.
