Instilling a passion with team members to create a Right Time Culture for Quality and Food Safety ensures wholesome products everyone can enjoy. This process begins with a plan aligned with FSMA, a Food Safety Roadmap, that starts at the design stage, through production, monitoring and finally when the customer or consumer indulges on the vast array of today’s convenient food products available globally. The safety of these products and creating that satisfying experience is the result of key attributes aligned to consumer expectations. Creating that product correctly from the get-go is the result of a Right First Time Culture. The opposite result can lead to added or hidden costs, waste, poor customer experience or worse recalls and foodborne illness.

Why you should Attend: Information and guidance on how food manufacturers can develop a Food Safety Roadmap that changes the culture to place quality and food safety top of mind for entire organization, in accordance with FSMA’s new Preventative Controls. This course will examine challenges in Food Safety within manufacturing, product design, and execution to transform from a lack of understanding about product safety and basics in sanitation to an attitude of technical assurance that food processors safely embrace role in feeding the world. Finally, this course will look inward toward behavioral change needed to make this leap to a Right First Time Culture.
