The course includes activities to help trainees develop a general plan and procedures to standardize and control food quality and safety transportation processes. For food shippers, carriers and receivers, standardization or upgrade to current practices is critical. For buyers, knowing how to establish standards for your food transporters sets the stage for required supply chain controls.
The journey from "Where do we start?" to "We are compliant food safety carriers." begins here and establishes a basis for meeting newly evolving FSMA food safety during transportation requirements.
Developing procedures that combine both process quality and food safety is critical to meeting new FDA FSMA thinking. General information required to understand how measurement of food transportation processes can provide important management information intended to help control potential causes of shelf life loss, food recalls, human illness and death. Case, pallet and container technologies and system designs are covered. Return on Investment (ROI) techniques are covered as well as actual data from a variety of shipments showing how a lack of management and control can cost more than the sanitation and traceability technologies would cost.
Review and understanding of suggested management, sanitation, temperature monitoring/traceability, hazard analysis, training standards will set the stage for the development of relatively simple procedures that are referred to in the shipper's contract of carriage.
There are a number of good reasons to attend this critical and often overlooked food safety training. Your company can:
Why should you Attend:
Understanding the new rules and building a sanitary transportation system is included in the FDA's FSMA hazard analysis risk-based preventive controls requirements for improved food safety during transportation processes. Failure to establish and keep required documentation exposes food transporters to heavy fines and business closures.
If your company transports or causes food to be transported, standardizing and controlling transportation processes in order to prevent food adulteration and preserve food quality is critical. While the recent Sysco issues provide a good example of what not to do, your company must have a consistent ability to meet customer and legal food safety transportation compliance requirements. It is clear that food container tracking, sanitation, temperature and humidity control and record keeping are becoming supply chain issues requiring increased attention across all company locations.
