International FSQA<br />Sr. Dir. Animal Welfare<br />Sr. Dir. Statistical Process Design<br />
  3. 3. Food Safety Scope<br />Involves a Step-Wise Approach:<br />Policy / Program Development;<br />Training;<br />Monitoring – Process Control;<br />Auditing; and<br />Verification.<br />Detailed within the Tyson Foods’ FSQA Policies and Procedures<br />
  4. 4. Food Safety Philosophy<br />“Quality is expected, Food Safety is required…”<br />Assure production of safe, high quality products in large volumes at competitive prices;<br />Collaborate with academic institutions on applied research -- Conduct applied research;<br />Work closely with regulators and customers to develop meaningful and reliable standards;<br />Develop technologies to reduce risk;<br />Validate efficacy of technology;<br />Training and education of team members; and<br />System implementation and verification (audit oversight).<br />
  5. 5. Food Safety Scope<br />Involves a Step-Wise Approach:<br />Policy / Program Development;<br />Training;<br />Monitoring – Process Control;<br />Auditing; and<br />Verification.<br />That’s all great and good, but if we’re not doing the right thing – it won’t matter that we do it well!<br />
  6. 6. Policy and Program Development<br />"We want to do those things that will truly impact public health and prevent foodborne illnesses… we have to work smarter, more efficiently with our resources.”<br />~ Elizabeth Hagen, MD <br />USDA Undersecretary for Food Safety<br />American Farm Bureau Annual Meeting January 2011<br />
  7. 7. Policy and Program Development<br />“Evolution is the law of policies: Darwin said it, Socrates endorsed it, Cuvier proved it and established it for all time in his paper on The Survival of the Fittest. These are illustrious names, this is a mighty doctrine: nothing can ever remove it from its firm base, nothing dissolve it, but evolution.” <br />~ Mark Twain<br />When in Doubt, Tell the Truth<br />
  8. 8. Policy and Program Development<br />So – How do we make sure our policies and programs are founded on a solid base and modified as necessary in response to evolutionary pressure?<br />
