Read Frequently Asked Questions

Food Manufacturing & Processing, Wholesale & Distribution, Beverages and Agribusinesses have traditionally managed Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) initiatives in a siloed or disintegrated manner through manual approaches and point based solutions. Some companies have leveraged and extended resources and IT systems used by Quality management, Environmental, Health and Safety, and Sustainability departments for managing corporate policies, internal controls, compliance and risk requirements, various assessments and audits.

But, as the organizations expand their operations to new markets, regions and countries either through their own subsidiaries or through mergers & acquisitions, the scale and scope of these programs increase and complexity of existing (SOX, FCPA, FSMA, FPLA, CPSIA, FLSA, OSHA etc.) and number of new regulatory compliance requirements (financial, trading, food safety & quality, supply chain, social & ethical, environmental compliance etc.), risks (enterprise risk, supply chain risk, trading risk, compliance risk etc.) and internal audits are exponentially increasing.

Companies need to embrace an integrated GRC approach distinct from Quality and EHS Management programs. This approach will help organizations adopt a systematic framework to manage and track the entirety of corporate policies, regulatory requirements, risk registers, risk identification & assessments, audits, manage issues and mitigation actions etc and provide a groundwork for unifying quality, risk and compliance initiatives in the future.

Join this session where experts share best practices on how to:

  • Automate and integrate governance, risk, compliance, and audit programs
  • Effectively manage and monitor various compliance regulations, audits
  • Conduct privacy assessments, compliance with policies, and annual compliance review
  • Adopt risk management frameworks and best practices to manage wide variety of risks including emerging risks, risk mapping & assurance etc.
  • Collate and present compliance risk and audit program metrics to the board
  • Integrate GRC programs with other Quality Management, EHS and Sustainability programs for better business process assurance
