Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) are two facts of life facing food processors today. But what is legally required, and how does that compare to GFSI certification standards? This webinar will give you a high-level overview of the regulations and standards that will help you to know the difference and prioritize your limited resources in a way that will best benefit you and your company.

FDA food safety regulations and GFSI food safety standards are often complementary, but they are not identical. GFSI certification is voluntary (although many retailers and manufacturers require it as a condition of doing business with them). Small companies may be particularly confused about what is mandatory for legal compliance and how that differs from the best practices specified in the GFSI standards. This webinar will present an overview of the different approaches taken by FDA and by some of the GFSI standards to ensuring the safety of the US food supply.
