5 Key Takeaways from the 2021 GFSI Conference


Earlier this week, FoodLogiQ had the pleasure of attending and speaking at GFSI’s annual Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) Conference, hosted virtually this year. Hundreds of delegates and speakers from leading brands and organizations across the globe met to discuss the evolution, state and future of food safety between March 23 and 25. Known as one of the world’s most important conversations around food safety, the 2021 GFSI Conference focused on the theme “Food Safety: Rethink, Reset, Recharge,” and featured a wide range of sessions showcasing how each of these elements has been critical to the state of food safety, especially  through the supply chain disruption brought on by COVID-19.

Streamlining Product Withdrawal Resolution with FoodLogiQ's New Recall + Response Functionality


The food and beverage manufacturing industry is no stranger to the commonality of product removals and withdrawals. On the contrary, leading food manufacturers and distributors execute and respond to product removal and recall events on a frequent basis – often several times a day. In addition, research shows that recalls in the U.S. have risen over the past decade. According to a report released by the Public Interest Research Group (PIRG), the total number of food recalls in the U.S. increased by 10% between 2013 and 2018. Meat and poultry incidents rose by 67% during this time frame, and Class I recalls of meat and poultry increased by 83%.
