food safety fridays webinar purchasing

Description: 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.
