FoodLogiQ Joins with Partners and Customers to Present at 2018 Food Safety Supply Chain Conference

Do you trust your suppliers? Are they FSMA compliant and certified to GFSI schemes?  How are you keeping track of them? In a perfect world, all food companies would know the answers to these questions; however, for many, supply chain management is the weakest link in their food safety program.       

On June 12 -13, food industry professionals will gather in Rockville, Maryland at Food Safety Tech’s Food Safety Supply Chain Conference to gain valuable insight on tools, technologies and techniques that can help with managing supplier performance, capturing food quality incidents, and providing transparency throughout the global supply chain.  FoodLogiQ is pleased to add to these valuable discussions with the following presentations:

Managing Quality in the Supply Chain: It’s All About the Data

Presented by Katy Jones, CMO at FoodLogiQ, and Elizabeth Pierson, Quality Assurance Coordinator for Food & Beverage at Dave & Buster’s (June 13, 11:30 am - 12:15 pm)

One of the most challenging tasks in today's food industry is managing and monitoring quality throughout the supply chain. Keeping a close, data-driven eye on safety and quality is not only important from a regulatory standpoint; it is also critical to maintaining the integrity of your brand.

During this presentation, FoodLogiQ and Dave & Busters will share their best practices for capturing, monitoring and analyzing quality and safety data from supplier to consumer. Highlights of the session include:

  • Approaches and best practices to managing data  
  • Tips on creating a process for capturing quality incidents and communicating directly with suppliers
  • Leveraging quality data to make more informed supply chain decisions   

Building Supply Chain Efficiencies Within a Fast-Growing Business

Presented by Bryan Cohn, Vice President, Supply Chain & Market Development at Seal the Seasons, and Gina Kramer, Executive Director at Savour Food Safety International (June 13, 1:15 - 2 pm)

What drives a company to pursue supply chain efficiency? There are many motivating factors, including time and money savings; FSMA requirements and the company’s need for compliance and farm-to-fork traceability; and concerns about potential consumer health risks following a product recall and the subsequent harm to the seller’s brand.  

During this presentation, Savour Food Safety International will share best practices for companies that want to develop a long-term food safety culture and/or a behavior change program, followed by frozen produce company Seal the Seasons as they explain what prompted their journey to supply chain efficiency, how they managed it, and the amazing results, including:

  • Developing a system that focuses on the prevention of a product recall before the product ever makes it to distribution
  • How supply chain events are being communicated to key stakeholders in real time
  • A comparison of a product lab sampling process before-and-after the use of a streamlined, technology solution
  • The exploration and expansion of vendor relationships through education and online training
