Why Should You Attend:

The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is transforming the US food safety system into one that is based on the prevention of foodborne illnesses. It will be a system in which the food industry systematically puts in place measures proven effective in preventing contamination. Having a GFSI recognized certification can be important to a company that is selling to one of the major retailers and is obliged to comply with FSMA requirements.

The importance of understanding the GFSI requirement is undeniable for suppliers who plan to sell to large retailers. GFSI “benchmarks” food safety standards, assessing them against a set of criteria to ensure the core of the standards are equivalent and certification will be acceptable. The objective is “Once certified, accepted everywhere” eliminating the time expense involved in duplication of audits. Many retailers and food manufacturing companies are requesting that suppliers become certified to a GFSI recognized Standard. It is also important to know which GFSI standard applies to your industry.
