The food industry is now well and truly global. The major retailers over the last decade have been instrumental in driving compliance and food safety standards among their supply base. The Global Food Safety Initiative and related global standards now define how these requirements are met and have created a supply chain where certification is a prerequisite to doing business. As the dominance of retailers continues to increases and on-going food safety outbreaks raise the compliance demands even further, food processing businesses are becoming more aware of the of the importance of maintaining standards and the significant resources required to do this. This short presentation will address the trends and recent changes in global food safety compliance, the importance of maintaining standards and how food processing businesses can improve how they manage food safety effectively and efficiently to meet the needs of global retailers.
