Being in the consumer spotlight each and every day, retailers cannot afford to compromise on food safety. It is simply crucial to our reputation and consumer confidence. Retailers have shown that they can introduce processes quickly to deal with known and newly emerging food safety risks. This is a huge challenge bearing in mind that retailers deal with thousands of different food product lines.

Retailers have shown that they can introduce processes quickly to deal with known and newly emerging food safety risks. This is a huge challenge bearing in mind that retailers deal with thousands of different food product lines. We keep on top of these issues by setting up and actively participating in quality schemes and voluntary initiatives, such as those endorsed by GFSI.

Historically, food safety agendas mainly focused upon assessing and managing risk within the primary processing and manufacturing unit. We now realise that supply chains are, in reality, an aggregation of multiple chains derived from the numerous components which make up the products. Any failure anywhere within these chains can result in major incidents. Is this where new and emerging connected technologies can really start to help?
