Join Kestrel at the CIFT Food Safety Workshop January 16

December 10, 2013 - Kestrel Food Safety

The enactment of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) more than two years ago shifted the focus from responding to contamination in food, to preventing it. Similarly, the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) has developed the standards against which well-known schemes (i.e., SQF, BRC, FSSC 22000, IFS) are benchmarked and called for by food buyers. Food companies throughout the U.S. are responding by working hard to meet expectations put forth by both.

Join Kestrel Management at the CIFT 2014 Kickoff Food Safety Workshop to gain up-to-date insight for both approaches to food safety — featuring new case activity exercises.
