The Music of Food Safety - Hearing the Silence Between the Notes


Our new guest blogger is Steve Franke, a FoodLogiQ Enterprise Account Manager. He’s an avid sports fan, music aficionado, and a hiker at heart.

It was French composer Claude Debussy who pointed out that music is not just in the notes, but equally in the silence between them.  To visualize, imagine your favorite song, with all the same notes, but with no space between those notes. It would be a long, terrible-sounding, run-on sound with no rhythm or melody.

Centralized Supplier Documentation: A Key Factor in Supplier Management


Sixty-nine percent of businesses do not have full visibility of their supply chains, according to the Business Continuity Institute. Under FSMA guidelines, visibility of supplier documentation is essential to the safety of your food business. Implementing a management system for supplier documents will enable your team to promptly and strategically make decisions with ease based on current, real-time supplier data.

Establishing Supplier Management Best Practices


Your suppliers are one of the most important determinants of the success of your food business. If they do not adhere to regulations or safety practices, you may find your business in jeopardy. Recent laws, such as the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), have increased the responsibilities and roles of food businesses in preventing foodborne disease outbreaks and ensuring food safety. The rule has set several stringent requirements on supply chain related activities, including mandatory documentation of important supplier activities for most businesses.

Supply Chain Complexity and the Importance of Traceability


The food supply chain is more complex than ever. This complexity refers to the interconnectedness and multiple interdependencies that exist between stakeholders within the food supply chain. The increase in food variety and lower barriers to global food trade are among the primary drivers of supply chain complexity.

In a survey by the Business Continuity Institute, 77 percent of manufacturing firms reported increasing supply chain complexity as the fastest growing risk in business continuity.
