Food Safety Culture – what does it mean?
Bill McBride, Chair, Auditor Competence Scheme Committee, GFSI
The main issue exercising GFSI and the GFSI benchmarked schemes presently is management commitment and how management influences the presence or lack of a food safety culture within a food business. Investigating some of the recent ‘failures’ of food safety certified businesses recently leads to the conclusion that most failed due to lack of management commitment – playing lip service to the standard – focussing on the need for a certificate to capture a market rather than what the certificate represents. This session will debate this issue and seek some potential solutions.
