A Practitioner’s Guide to Navigating Food Quality and Safety Standards
Each year, 48 million Americans get sick from foodborne illness, with approximately 128,000 hospitalized and 3,000 deaths. The steady annual increase of this number is at least partially attributable to the complexities of the global food supply chain. With the food supply chain now stretching around the world, our food products are more vulnerable than ever to accidental contamination and intentional adulteration that can cause serious physical and financial harm. How can the twenty-first-century food and beverage industry meet this complex challenge?
The new Intelex Insight Report Food Integrity: A Practitioner’s Guide to Navigating Food Quality & Safety Standards is the first of three reports dedicated to helping you learn about securing the food supply chain. You’ll learn about:
- creating a holistic approach to food integrity that incorporates food safety, food quality, and food defense
- the best practices, standards, and frameworks you need to know
- the importance of anticipating and preventing food integrity events instead of simply responding to them, and
- how the psychology and motivation of criminal perpetrators are vital considerations in a food defense plan.
