The Center for Food Integrity 2023 Transparency Summit will take place November 14–15 at the Loews Chicago O’Hare Hotel. Experts will discuss transparency opportunities and challenges across the food supply chain.
A lack of supply chain visibility frustrates efforts to ensure food safety or improve organizational efficiency and customer satisfaction. Key data points, such as unique product identification and location, need to be standardized and digitally encoded so that they can be automatically captured and shared up and down the supply chain, to help ensure interoperability.
Leveraging digital supply chain technologies—like blockchain, AI, and other solutions—can help importers comply with FDA's Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) more efficiently and effectively, while also improving supply chain transparency and reducing the risk of food safety incidents.
In this episode of Food Safety Matters, we interviewed professionals from the industry, regulatory, and nonprofit sectors, live from the show floor of the Food Safety Summit, which took place on May 9–12 in Rosemont, Illinois. We discussed food safety management systems, the New Era of Smarter Food Safety, recall modernization, supply chain disruptions, food fraud, and humanizing food safety through effective messaging.
