Avoid recalls by automating food safety risk intelligence reporting: a step-by-step guide

As the number of recalls continue to grow each hear it is evident that the traditional reactive approach to addressing food safety incidents is no longer sufficient. Food & beverage companies are increasingly looking to embrace innovative solutions that will allow them to have a complete overview of all risks to their supply chain by compiling analytical reports for FS/FQ teams.

An expanding threat landscape

In the USA the number of recalls increased by 7% in 2023 compared to 2022 according to FDA. Geopolitical unrest that leads to global supply chain disruptions, novel food risks, frequent regulatory and legislative changes, the global shifting of dietary habits feed safety issues evolving to food safety issues are all factors that can contribute to overall uncertainty for food & beverage companies about their supply chain. All these necessitate that food companies move beyond reacting to announced food safety incident to being to anticipate them.
