5 Ways to Optimize Food Manufacturing Product Removals

Don’t miss FoodLogiQ’s upcoming live demo on how manufacturers can optimize product removals, and reduce times and costs associated with withdrawals.

Product removals, withdrawals and recalls continue to rise in number across the industry. And with them, so are technology-driven preventive methods, preparatory measures and risk mitigation strategies. As ARC Advisory Group writes, “Most companies are making targeted investments to both improve their internal controls to reduce the risk of product recalls and improve their ability to recall products, when necessary.”

As a food manufacturer or distributor, it’s crucial to develop strategies that enable you to respond to product removal events with immediacy, cost-effectiveness and ease. This is especially important considering the average cost of a recall to a food company is $10 million in direct costs, not including brand damage and lost sales.

In addition, consumers expect food companies to resolve recalls in less time than ever. A recent FoodLogiQ report found that two thirds of consumers expect recalls to be resolved in a matter of days – with nearly 80% of consumers indicating that they would avoid use, switch to a competitor or cease to give a company their business if a brand is affected by a recall or contamination leading to consumer sickness.
