This food safety webinar addresses components of Good Manufacturing Practices that packaging material suppliers should follow for adherence to both regulatory and voluntary standards protocols

Why Should You Attend:

Food safety concerns in the supply chain arte driving global requirements for good manufacturing practices (both legal and contractual) in the way packaging material suppliers manufacture and market their products. Packaging suppliers must be ready to address both procedural and material changes in their operations and food processors must know what retailers will require of them in the case of a food safety alert.

Food packaging producers for products sold in both the US and European Union are legally obligated to use “good manufacturing practices” (gmp) in producing their products. Additionally, contractual requirements for certifications to international food safety standards are compelling virtually all food packaging material suppliers to develop, document and practice formal gmp procedures in their facilities. Recent EU initiatives have spelled out expectations for gmp compliance much more clearly than have US regulations.

This webinar addresses the components of gmp programs for adherence to both regulatory and voluntary standards protocols. Attention is given to ancillary components such as training, record keeping, internal auditing and corrective actions. Users of food packaging materials will learn what to expect of suppliers as part of their own gmp programs, and producers will understand how to protect themselves and their supply chain from ruinous disruptions.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Food processing facility inspections.
  • Sanitation standards for producing food packaging materials.
  • Compliance expectations, legal and contractual.
  • EU and US regulatory standards.
  • Packaging material traceability.
  • Product recall response.
  • Third-party certification standards for packaging.
  • Training, record keeping, internal audits, corrective actions.

Learning objectives:

The webinar provides clear direction on legal and (evolving) contractual expectations for facilities manufacturing food packaging materials and packaging material users who wish to audit suppliers. Special attention is given to traceability of materials used to manufacture the packaging and required record keeping .

Free handouts:

Checklist of basic gmp procedures at food packaging material producers for producers to observe and users to use for auditing.

Who Will Benefit:

  • Personnel responsible for HACCP, food safety procedures, FDA compliance, product traceability and safety audits at food processing facilities
  • Members of the Institute of Food Technologists and American Society for Quality involved in food safety and quality assurance
  • Packaging engineers at companies using or supplying food packaging material
