One of the three most critical food safety issues facing the food industry today is supply chain failures.
Supply chain failures can impact many aspects of businesses functioning. Both incoming products and ingredients and outgoing final delays or failures can cause ripples throughout the supply chain that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to companies and their clients.
As the supply chain continues to become more and more complex, poor planning and the lack of defense systems against supply chain failures can cause losses in reputation, poor quality, failing food safety protection, poor product delivery, share price decline, product recalls and many other problems.
Why you should attend:
- This webinar will review the issues surrounding the economic disruption caused by supply chain failures. Risks, rules, foreseeable even one of the three most critical food safety issues facing the food industry today is supply chain failures.
- No food supply company can afford late or inferior quality or food safety failures at any point in their process, but when incoming supplies are not where they should be or when they should be all downstream the consuming public may be detrimentally impacted, and many supply chain members are set to fail.
- Food suppliers cannot afford supply chain failures, especially concerning food safety and quality, but such failures occur on a daily basis throughout the industry. Companies need to begin to understand the risks involved and establish effective management approaches that help them to prevent and respond quickly to potential supply failures.
