FoodChain ID, a food safety, testing, and sustainability organization, will host a free webinar titled “Promoting Food Safety Culture in a Time of Crisis,” to guide best practices for the food manufacturing industry during the current pandemic.
The webinar will be held June 4 at 10:00 AM, EDT. The company noted that it’s first three COVID-19 related webinars attracted over 2,500 registrants, mainly food safety professionals.
“It is essential for food manufacturing facilities to continually improve upon their food safety culture and ensure the delivery of safe food to their customers,” notes Gary Smith, Foodchain’s vice president of food safety and webinar moderator in a statement.
“This culture can be tested in times of crisis by employee absences, pressure to ensure business continuity, and the implementation of new practices to control the spread of diseases like COVID-19.”
The webinar will feature leading industry experts for a deep-dive into the concept of food safety culture; the tools and activities to develop and improve it; the requirements for industry standards such as GFSI recognized standards, and employee communication strategies that enhance this culture within a food manufacturing facility.
Speakers include Ringailé Bulatovic-Schumer, director of culture development at Culture Excellence, and Adam E. Friedlander, manager, food safety and technical services, FMI, the Food Industry Association.
This webinar, along with others, will be stored on FoodChain ID’s COVID-19 Resource Center, which is accessed daily by thousands of food safety professionals.
