Food safety is paramount for any food business. Maintaining high safety standards minimizes the risk of food safety incidents, protects your brand’s reputation and, more importantly, keeps unsafe food off the market. But adhering to appropriate food safety standards is not always easy. Shortcuts are tempting, especially when safety tasks are considered difficult, expensive or time-consuming. In the food industry, however, there is no room for shortcuts. An organizational culture that prioritizes food safety is vital to the production of safe food.
