Increased consumer awareness around food safety and food protection has put a spotlight on the issues as they continue the climb the global agenda, driven by the challenges of Covid-19 pandemic.
The last year has also highlighted the need to further strengthen and future proof our food supply chain. As such, new demands are being placed on retailers, regulators, brands, producers and packaging system providers.
In this presentation we will address the challenges around managing a global supply chain, and maintaining transparency, trust, compliance, and excellence in food safety processes during times of unprecedented shifts in consumer and geographical demand. We will also explore how the challenges and pressures around sustainability will influence the way we address and manage food protection and food safety.
Finally, in preparation for what is now constant significant change, we will offer a perspective on what it takes to truly connect stakeholders across the food industry and enhance food safety throughout the value chain, focussing on materials supply, processing and packaging though to consumers.
The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) brings together key actors of the food industry to collaboratively drive continuous improvement in food safety management systems around the world. With a vision of Safe food for consumers everywhere, food industry leaders created GFSI in 2000 to find collaborative solutions to collective concerns, notably to reduce food safety risks, audit duplication and costs while building trust throughout the supply chain.
