Join us for this 40-minute webinar to learn how changes in the Food & Beverage Industry are impacting organizations and what's ahead for Food Safety in 2022 and beyond.

The webinar will:
• Address how the Food & Beverage industry has quietly undergone a revolution and become a Just-In-Time industry
• Reflect on what we can learn from just-in-time philosophies, and the implications for Food Safety assurance
• The role data will play in getting to a “no mistakes” approach
• What the industry is already doing to make this a reality

Food Safety continues to be one of the top enterprise risks for many Food & Beverage companies. Much of the debate on Food Safety currently focuses on technical issues like Whole genome sequencing, rise in allergens, and issues posed by the circular economy. But are these the right topics?

The increasing complexity of Food Safety and increased pressures on technical resources, combined with a food industry that has become a Just-In-Time industry poses new challenges. Have our Food Safety assurance mechanisms evolved to keep pace with the changes in the industry and society?
