 Organised by IFST Food Safety Group

This webinar will explore the importance of learning from the past to ensure a safer future. We will examine past incidents, focusing on issues discovered through analysis of food samples and how they resulted in new technical understanding - as well as looking into wider issues such as the importance of traceability, supply chain controls and a good food safety culture. We will also consider how events impact food businesses, food safety and consumer trust - and the need to remember things that have never been experienced, taught, or embedded in corporate memory or culture. Participants will be invited to share their experiences and submit questions.

What participants will learn about:

  • what businesses need from the start (e.g. HACCP) and relevant controls
  • the role, and limitations, of sampling
  • high profile cases
  • importance of allergens
  • what makes a product safe
  • what form of confirmation indicates the product is being made safely
  • what you can and can’t control
  • how to identify what has gone wrong

Target audience: Students and professionals working in laboratories, Quality Assurance, supply chain, technical management, Corporate Social Responsibility, enforcement and/or consumer services (manufacturing, retail, foodservice).
