  • Blockchain & Food Safety: Part of the Solution or Part of the Problem?

    Blockchain has taken center stage at recent Food Safety and CGF conferences and features in many publications. And with it, much confusion and perhaps over-exuberance on blockchain being the solution, has arisen.

  • How Are Consumer Trends and Technology Affecting Food Safety?

    There’s never been a more exciting time to work in the food industry. With changing demographics, technology, operating environments, regulations, commerce and routes to market - it’s a perfect storm of innovation.

    There’s never been a more exciting time to work in the food industry. With changing demographics, technology, operating environments, regulations, commerce and routes to market - it’s a perfect storm of innovation. As food professionals, we have to keep pace with these changes. Food safety is a key aspect of this and must be at the forefront of our field.

  • How Are Digital Technologies Transforming Food Value Chains?

    Digital technologies may help you manage your supply chain more effectively while reducing costs and frictions and help you understand consumer preferences and feedback better than ever. How will digital transformation change the food industry and impact food safety and sustainability? The combination of several new digital technologies has disrupted some industries already, and is changing other industries with different pace.

  • How Technology and Innovation are Transforming Food Safety and Sustainability

    The evidence that we need to find new ways to manage food safety is growing all the time. Right now, the world’s population is currently growing by 80 million people a year. Overall the global population is forecast to expand to 8.6 billion by 2030. By 2050 this population will require a major increase in food production.

  • Securing Safety Across the Supply Chain: Cow to Cart

    The dairy supply chain has become increasingly complex, thanks to a proliferation of new products and packaging options, as well as increasingly stringent regulatory requirements. Other challenges for those along the dairy supply chain include the need to keep dairy products cold from packaging to transport, and thin margins that make cost controls essential.
