  • Is Food Safety Culture Achievable? Yesterday, 04:18 PM   food safety fridays, webinars and 3 more...
    Food Safety Culture is the group of beliefs and values that a group of people has towards food safety. Food Safety Culture starts with the management team and ends with the employees. Food Safety Culture is a way of “living” the policies, programs and procedures established in the Food Safety Management System. However, establishing and environment where food safety is fostered and becomes a way of living throughout the food supply chain can be challenging. This webinar will go over a road map on how to foster a food safety culture after the implementation of Food Safety Management Systems is achieved.

  • Food Safety Aspects of Developing New Products 09 April 2021 - 04:05 PM   food safety fridays, webinar and 4 more...
    Developing a new product is always challenging for the company. This means that you need to take care of the number of aspects from taste, colour, packaging to marketing and market positioning of your new product. On this path the majority of producers only focus on quality aspects of the product forgetting basic thing that is food safety. In this topic, we are going to talk about the product development steps and food safety aspects that need to be considered in each step. Finally, we will explain how to handle the financial expenses of the food safety in the process of developing new products for small producers.

  • Lessons from the pandemic on food safety and certification 19 March 2021 - 05:33 PM   food safety fridays, webinar and 5 more...
    Food Safety is a priority for the food industry and challenges such as a pandemic cannot distract our attention from our priorities. Instead, we must adapt and change our approach. At times we need to be more flexible and interestingly this has led us to ways of operating that previously were not considered.

    The pandemic has reinforced the importance of working together as an industry to find solutions to maintain food safety and to continue to reassure our customers via certification, that food safety is still our number one priority. In this webinar we will share our learnings on how the industry has adapted to provide audits solutions, the role of ICT, employee training opportunities, feedback from Certification Bodies and pest management.

  • Good Purchasing Practices 25 February 2021 - 07:35 PM   food safety fridays, webinar and 1 more...
    In 2008 one single event in one small plant led to one of the largest food safety recalls in history, killing nine people and affecting the health of hundreds. This incident, known as the PCA Salmonella scandal, was a wakeup call for food manufacturers across the Globe. Once again, a relatively small supplier with a certified food safety management system, had caused mindboggling damage. Following this event and others, buyers and regulatory agencies have revised their attitude towards ensuring food safety throughout the food chain. The PCA scandal was a major trigger in initiating legislation of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) in the US, which requires us to rely less on HACCP and more on HARPC, where the CCPs (critical control points) are now part of a larger plan which includes RPCs (risk preventive controls). One of the most important RPCs in the Rule, and in many other current Food Safety Management schemes, is robust, risk based supplier control.

    In this webinar, we will receive a toolbox for managing supplier risk and learn how to use these tools based on hazard analysis of purchased goods. We will touch on third party certification schemes, performing second party supplier audits, designing acceptance criteria and more.

  • Developing a Good Product Inspection Culture 14 November 2020 - 01:17 PM   food safety fridays, webinar and 4 more...
    Many organizations have made significant investments in Product Inspection solutions, the value of this investment can be quickly lost without a good culture. Product Inspection Culture does not happen by accident and if it does you are taking a huge risk. Just as important as the implementation of inspection devices themselves, implementation of a good Product Inspection Culture with your people and processes can have a large impact on the success of your Product Inspection Program. We will discuss why the culture is so important and provide examples of both good and bad practices.

  • Food Safety Culture Development 17 October 2020 - 08:31 AM   food safety fridays, webinars and 1 more...
    The concern with Food Safety Culture is growing in many organizations, even those with their Food Safety System already certified. Many efforts have been engaged for the development of Safety Culture, but there are theoretical gaps in these efforts, which reflect on the quality of programs developed and, consequently, on the results achieved.

    This webinar aims to present basic concepts about organizational culture and, more specifically, about Food Safety Culture, showing the theoretical model of DNV GL. In this model, we understand culture as aggregation of beliefs, practices and perceptions of an organization, which can be evaluated from seven attributes previously defined and understood in a continuum of existing levels of culture.

    The identification of each attributes and the stage of culture which this organization is established, it is essential to the definition of a program that seeks to develop the Food Safety Culture.

  • Adulteration, Misbranding and Food Fraud 17 October 2020 - 08:30 AM   food safety fridays, webinar and 5 more...
    Adulteration, misbranding and food fraud each continue to be significant problems for the U.S. food industry. While many of these errors are unintentional, some are done to intentionally deceive consumers. These issues are not only economically deceptive, some can prompt food safety concerns. The increased use of the internet to market foods and the rise in international trade creates even greater challenges in ensuring that the labeling on the website and the foods sold there are compliant for the US market.

  • An Overview of FSSC 22000 V. 5 21 September 2020 - 05:31 PM   FSSC 22000 version 5, PDCA and 1 more...
    The FSSC Foundation published version 5 of their standard in May 2019. This new version of the scheme has been issued to primarily include the new ISO22000:2018 as well as to simplify and clarify some points from the previous version. A key change with the new ISO 22000:2018 scheme is the inclusion of 2 Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycles within the FSSC 22000 scheme. This presentation will look at how these 2 PDCA Cycles are involved in looking at the organizational risk and operational risk in both a positive and negative manner.

  • Integrating Management Systems for Food Businesses 14 August 2020 - 04:26 PM   food safety fridays, webinar, IMS and 7 more...
    ISO Annex L requires individual management systems to require a High Level Structure. In response, more often modern businesses are seeking to create a seamless compliance management framework that unifies disparate compliance Management Systems from Food Safety, Quality, and Environmental Management to Occupational Health & Safety, Sustainability, and Information Security Management.

    This session will explore practical approaches to creating a singular system of management that is leaner and more efficient than multiple separate systems, including the streamlining of duplicate processes and improving transparency with integrated audits and documentation to improve co-operation across the business group.
