During the last year food processing and food service companies have pushed safety management certification up the supply chain to packaging and container manufacturers. On February 15, 2011, the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) launched a new packaging technical working group to review best practices and define audits in manufacturing food packaging http://bit.ly/gfsipkg .
In the meantime, packaging manufacturers need to satisfy the supply chain safety certification their customers require. To help clarify the issue and recommend effective action, Allen Sayler, VP of Food Safety, Technology & Regulatory Solutions at H. Randolph Associates, will present the webinar “Food Safety Audits – A Business Advantage Not a Burden” on March 29, 2011. http://www.nwasoft.com/PACKwebinar1.htm .
