Is Food from Chain Safe? Complying with the New Perishable Food Import Requirements (Food Safety Complian)
Venue: Online Event
|Event Date/Time: Apr 19, 2012||End Date/Time: Apr 19, 2012|
If your company imports or exports fresh produce, frozen or other food from or to foreign countries, you need to be aware of newly evolving compliance requirements and you must be able to put in place a proactive strategy in order to assure and protect your shipments and the customers they are intended to reach. From a competitive standpoint, it is imperative for companies to begin planning to meet new customer, CBP, Food Safety Modernization Act and FDA rules before enactment of those rules is announced.
The session will cover strategies and procedures that food supply and handling companies need to follow in order to provide the proper documentation and compliance information needed for supply chain food safety and for a smooth transition through border protection. Trends and data for imported perishables will be discussed. We will cover real-time cold chain temperature tracking and traceability using GPS and sensor technology as well as the documentation, "proof of control" and supply chain traceability required to meet legal requirements and needed by customs and border protection officials. The session will include a farm-to-distribution-to-retail supply chain strategy that can be planned and carried out to meet newly evolving Food and Drug Administration and Customs and Border Protection rules.
In addition to the session, a published white paper is available that includes case study information of value to attendees. This will include complete supply chain documentation and traceability. We will cover 10+2, food temperature, adulteration and bio-contaminant, tampering and explosives detection, and container sanitation requirements and will show how to proactively assure that shipments can move through border protection with the least delays or resistance. From the farm, through transportation, customs and distribution, documentation and supply chain compliance is required. Pilot and case studies are included. Potential fines and government levied fees will be discussed.
