Why Should You Attend:

When HACCP began to evolve, new technologies focused on rapid elimination of bacteriological and chemical contaminants also began to evolve. From a quality perspective with out a real-time measurement, there can be no control. Any person involved in food safety and quality control needs to consider the newly emerging technologies focused on the early detection and control of biological and chemical contaminants. The need to implement stronger and faster process and product control systems requires that food safety and quality measurement capabilities undergo drastic changes away from manual physical inspection and laboratory results driven capabilities.

New sensor technologies that become linked to automated data collection systems such as Radio Frequency Identification Device (RFID) readers and closed-loop computerized control systems are on the horizon. Sensor systems capable of measuring temperatures and humidities and transmitting that data through RFID readers, satellite transmission or mobile data carriers are currently available. Other technologies such as fiber optics to detect pathogens in farm water pipes and smart sensor networks (motes) that can identify e-coli by scanning produce in process will also be discussed.

Attend this Webinar to understand the elements of close loop control system, quality management concepts to food safety, the cold chain and other application of sensor technologies and how to implement in your company.

Areas Covered in the Seminar:

  • The Missing Link in Food Safety: Rapid, real-time measurement and closed-loop control systems.
  • Quality control concepts critical to the management of food safety and quality.
  • A conceptual closed-loop system for the food supply chain.
  • Farm Level HACCP and bio-contaminant measurement
  • The Cold Chain: Temperature measurement systems designed for tracking and reporting thermal conditions during food transportation cycles.
  • Other examples of sensor applications
  • Current sensor technology and the companies involved.

Who Will Benefit:

  • Food quality and safety control professionals responsible for system design, implementation and maintenance need to become aware of measurement demands and technologies.
  • Food technology professionals interested in newer and faster methods of analysis and how their work impacts the food supply chain.
  • Food supply chain buyers looking to establish food safety/quality standards for their suppliers.
  • The session is also a must for federal, state and local officials involved in the food safety arena who still believe that audits and inspections are capable of controlling food safety or quality.

Instructor Profile:
Dr. John Ryan, is the Administrator for the Hawaii State Department of Agriculture's Quality Assurance Division and a co-chair of the newly formed FDA/CDC food protection information technology team. He has spent over 25 years implementing high technology quality control systems for international corporations and is currently implementing Hawaii’s RFID traceability and State Food Safety Certification system.

Dr. Ryan specializes in closed-loop quality control systems employing real-time traceability, sensor measurement devices and process controls. He has recently implemented the country's first farm-distribution-retail RFID pilot system tracking produce through the food supply chain (Google "Hawaii Food Traceability" or visit He is a co-chair of the FDA/CDC information technology food protection team.
