If you were working in food safety in the ‘90s, you will remember a series of high-profile international food safety crises. Audit fatigue was prevalent within the industry as retailers and brand manufacturers audited factories against their own standards, developed in isolation and with no consideration of convergence. Your professional contacts may have been limited to the people you worked with, your personal network may have stemmed from your university days. Fast forward to 2014 and you have your Linked-In groups, access to countless news feeds and your web browser will answer any question you can think of. You may also participate in the unique, neutral platform called the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).
