Measuring Culture Across the Food Supply Chain
Food safety culture has been on the agenda for many companies for some time now, and it is widely accepted as the foundation for making a step-change in food safety standards. Now Codex and regulators globally have introduced food safety culture into their framework for the evaluation of food companies.
In our latest webinar in the Food Safety Leadership series, Lloyd's Register, Conagra Brands and OSI Group examine the importance and impact of food safety culture in 2021, what industry leaders are doing to demonstrate that they have a good food safety culture within their own organization, and how best to extend food safety culture throughout their supply network.
