Inspections webinar

Pinpointing potential problems before they occur is a cardinal rule of business in the global food industry.

Inspections are a key component of a food safety management system that focuses on compliance and effectiveness of the system. Not only will an effective inspection program indicate how well control measures are maintained to minimize risks but will grant manufacturers the opportunity to be proactive, by identifying mistakes in their food safety system and building on an action plan to prevent a recurrence.
