Food Safety, Traceability, and Sustainability
Recent incidents of food-related illness in the public have highlighted an increased importance on food safety. Federal legislation has shifted the focus of U.S. food safety regulation from reactive to preventative, with companies eventually being required to develop preventive food safety controls, and share these plans with the FDA. Today, this type of traceability is critical to providing consumers with accurate information during food safety recalls. It is also important in helping consumers understand how food is grown, shipped, and consumed, conveying the story of every step along the production path.
