Global Food Safety Culture Series: Asia
The Global Food Safety Culture Series is designed to help you learn about the regional cultures in which your company operates and how to leverage those unique characteristics to improve your food safety outcomes. The series continues to explore five distinct regions: Europe, Australia, Asia, U.S. and Canada, and Latin America. During five separate webinars, these regional cultures will be explored at a macro level by Lone Jespersen, Ph.D., Cultivate, the impact of these regional cultural differences on food safety will be discussed by 3M Food Safety, and a practical case will be illustrated by a food safety professional at a food company operating in the specific region under study.
Welcome to Asia!
Here at our half-way point in the series, Lone Jespersen, Ph.D., Cultivate, will explore this regional subculture of the global food industry by describing its unique characteristics; Angel “Jun” Barnes Jr., 3M Food Safety, will describe how these cultural differences may impact food safety; and Dr. Ena A. Bernal, a food safety practitioner from the Philippines, will present her perspective on the influencers of food safety development in the country.
During this webinar, you will learn:
- How to effectively communicate and drive improvement in food safety
- Methods to identify the challenges you may face in maximizing your food safety culture

Lone Jespersen, Ph.D., Founder & Principal, Cultivate
Lone Jespersen has dedicated the last 15 years of her life to bettering food manufacturing operations and studying how culture affects food safety performance. She’s proud to hold a Ph.D. in Culture Enabled Food Safety and to have created an incredible network of worldwide collaborators within the food supply chain. She had no idea that one day she would be involved so intimately in this often lack-luster industry, but after 11 years with Maple Leaf Foods—including the uphill battle to regain consumer trust following the 2008 tragedy that killed 23 people—her life purpose shifted. At the time, she was in charge of food safety and operations learning strategies. It took a lot of introspection, questioning and scrutiny to turn Maple Leaf around. She led the relaunch and execution of Maple Leaf Foods’ food safety & operations learning strategies. A little more every day, she transformed its culture from the inside out.
