Preparing for the Proposed FSMA 204 Rule with Chick-fil-A

Don’t miss FoodLogiQ’s upcoming live webinar on how to prepare for the FDA's proposed traceability rule with industry leader Chick-fil-A.

Section 204 of the Food Safety Modernization Act instructs the FDA to develop additional recordkeeping requirements for certain foods to help establish clear tracing of a food product's source when needed to address food safety risks. In the proposed rule, the FDA encourages firms to maintain required traceability information in a single electronic system.

Here Comes the Growth...Is Your Restaurant Ready?

Our guest blogger Steve Franke is a FoodLogiQ Enterprise Account Manager. He’s an avid sports fan, music aficionado, and has spent over 30 years in the restaurant industry.

Some restaurants were well-positioned for the shifts in consumer spending that happened in 2020 following the impact of Covid-19. Major foodservice brands such as Chipotle, McDonald’s, Wingstop and Domino's saw record sales as a result of dining habits that were forcibly adjusted to accommodate restrictions and regulations. Drive-thru, curbside pick-up, carry out and delivery became the new normal. This brought new customers and increased sales from streams of revenue that had previously not been sufficiently tapped into, or had never even existed. Of course, every stakeholder within the food system faced tremendous challenges, but for the fortunate few, the past year was more of a boon to the bottom line than a bust.
