Ingredient Risk Identification, powered by HorizonScan™
HorizonScan is a daily supply chain monitoring system for ingredient and supplier threats for biological, chemical and physical hazards. The system provides daily alerts for food supply hazards for immediate attention to emerging food safety issues.
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.
Use a computer or mobile device to search by commodity, country of origin, type of threat, supplier, date of event, and more. Set up automatic alerts for the ingredients most important to your company. Keep your supply chain safe and your business running without interruption.
