New food safety regulations moving through the U.S. Congress, combined with the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), demand greater safety management by food processors. At the 2010 Institute of Food Technologists Annual Meeting we presented Symposium 171, “The Operational Implications of New Food Safety Regulations and GFSI” explored the issue. The Symposium was presented Monday, July 19, 2010, at 1:30 PM – 3:00 PM, in room S404 in Chicago’s McCormick Place.
The symposium contained four presentations by industry experts:
- 171-01. Increasing Verification Effectiveness of Prerequisite Programs, John G. Surak, Surak and Associates., Clemson, SC
- 171-02. Automated HACCP and Quality Management, Jeffery L. Cawley, Northwest Analytical Inc., Portland, OR
- 171-03. Track and Trace Compliance with Food Safety Regulations, David Miller, Operations Technologies, Greenville, SC
- 171-04. Boost Safety and Lower Risk through Effective GFSI and New Safety Regulations Record Management, Deborah Kacera, Pilgrim Software, Inc., Tampa, FL
A preliminary form of this session, “Implementing Food Safety Management Systems to Meet Regulations and GFSI Standards,” was presented March 30, 2010, as part of Pilgrim Software’s Educational Webinar Series for 2010. The recorded webcast and presentations are available at: http://bit.ly/c3LHbL .
