Guided by SIAL's journalist, they explained to viewers how food businesses can benefit from the work of the Global Food Safety Initiative. They also shared some exciting advancements that GFSI is leading on harmonisation, knowledge-sharing and partnerships on a global multi-stakeholder scale. Watch it here.
