Food Industry Leaders Share Recall Management Best Practices at the 2017 Food Safety Consortium


As we reflect back on 2017, food recalls continued to dominate our headlines even after the implementation of FSMA. Our industry has taken corrective actions to limit risk. We want to protect consumers as well as our brands, limiting the financial and reputational damage that a recall can inflict on a company. We, along with consumers, are also more aware and in tune with the news due to social media and the 24-hour news cycle. It may appear that there are more recalls, but I would argue, that the industry is more proactive and more accountable by submitting itself to voluntary recalls. Without a doubt, the food industry is under increased pressure.

At the Crossroads of Food Safety and Consumer Transparency

The food industry is experiencing a true transformation unlike anything it has seen in over 50 years. Processes are being modernized to meet FSMA compliance and food safety regulations. At the same time, there has been an overwhelming flood of consumer interest in the food they eat.

According to Fortune Magazine, food contamination costs the food industry $55.5 billion a year. Historically, the foodservice industry has focused on how to manufacture, distribute and sell items. However, in recent years, there has been a shift and product content transparency is a key component driving buyer behavior.

Containing the fallout from a food-related quality issue is never simple. It requires an all-hands-on-deck approach from several departments including legal, marketing, and finance in addition to food safety and supply chain members. It might make the news for a day or for a lot longer, but always requires a strong marketing campaign to minimize the reputational damage.
