In September 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released the much-anticipated Food Safety Modernization Act proposed traceability rule. The 50-page document indicates aggressive new timelines are right around the corner for adopting traceability recordkeeping requirements. Join FoodLogiQ Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer Katy Jones and VP of Supply Chain Strategy and Insights Julie McGill for a live webinar covering the most significant points within the rule proposal as well as how you can develop advanced traceability programs within the rule’s proposed timeline of 2 years.
