With the amount of work required to get our food from a farm onto our plates, there is little room for error when it comes to food safety. A breakdown at any stage of the food supply chain, whether it is at the farm, the manufacturing and processing, the distributor, the retailer or a restaurant can have catastrophic effects. Improperly handled food can lead to consumers getting sick or even worse. Even if a potential food safety risk is caught before any consumers are affected, recalling or destroying product can be costly to the entire industry.
Food producers, distributors, sellers, researchers, and regulators all play vital roles in ensuring food is safe for consumers to eat. Typically, while a food distributor might understand and address the concerns to food safety within their individual link in the supply chain, they may not be fully aware or understand the concerns and obstacles the other links in the chain face. This year’s Food Safety Summit is focusing on changing that. Understanding the food safety at every step can lead to coordination throughout the chain, offering better and more optimized protection. The opening session will focus on case studies at different stages of the food supply chain.
