SafetyChain Software recently announced the successful wrap-up of its online series, “FSQA Enabling Technologies – the Food Safety & Quality Assurance Game Changer.” Kicked off in January of 2015 and ending this past October, the series attracted more than 2,000 participants.

Known for offering a wide variety of complimentary online FSQA thought leadership events to the food industry – including its FSMA Fridays and GFSI in the Age of FSMA series – SafetyChain introduced the Enabling Technologies series to begin an important dialogue on the role of emerging technologies in managing key challenges faced by today’s food and beverage companies.

The complimentary series, which featured Leadership Forums, Tech Talks and eBriefs – many featuring recognized industry thought leaders as well as SafetyChain experts – is now available on-demand.

  • Series topics included:
  • Leveraging Technology for Best-in-Class Food Safety & Quality Operations
  • Tackling FSMA Compliance
  • Understanding and Managing Cost of Quality
  • Unleashing the Power of the Cloud on Food Safety & Quality
  • Conquering HACCP, HARPC and Food Safety Program Management
  • Tackling Food Safety Audits
  • The Critical Role of Technology on Today’s Food Safety and Quality Operations
  • FSQA on the Go – the Power of Food Safety & Quality Automation Mobile Applications

Dr. David Acheson, president of The Acheson Group and former Chief Medical Officer for USDA and Associate Commissioner for Foods at FDA – who kicked off the series with a leadership forum on Food Safety Risk Management and Supply Chain Controls, which also featured Nancy Wilson, Director of Quality Assurance, Risk and Safety for Wawa – commented, “With today’s global, complex food supply chain – and increasing regulatory requirements such as FDA’s FSMA – it is becoming increasingly difficult to manage risk while meeting operational KPIs using manual FSQA management systems.” Acheson continued, “There’s an important role for enabling technologies to increase operational efficiencies while sending safer food into commerce, and this was an important series to bring the food safety community into the discussion.”

Added Jill Bender, Vice President of Marketing Communications for SafetyChain, “SafetyChain is a recognized leader in offering online forums that provide insights, and facilitate discussions, on how the industry addresses challenges in sending safe, quality food into commerce – with more than 20,000 registrants for our events.  Deploying enabling automation technologies has become a vital strategy for improving FSQA, creating ROI and protecting brand from risk – and we wanted to promote meaningful dialogue on the impact of technology on key food safety and quality issues. We’re delighted that more than 2,000 safety, quality and operations professionals joined the conversation.”
