A critical component of any food company’s quality management is a decisive corrective and preventive action (CAPA) system to ensure product safety. The FDA defines corrective and preventative action as “One of the most important quality system elements."
FoodLogiQ joined over 400 food safety professionals and practitioners earlier this week at this year’s virtual SQF Unites conference. Spanning October 26th through the 28th, SQF Unites recently pivoted to a virtual event format, which allowed professionals across the industry to participate in an engaging, creative and informative event. Attendees ranged from food manufacturers, producers and growers, to SQF and substitute practitioners, auditors, trainers, and consultants. Additionally, professionals across the food retail and wholesale space, as well as solution providers, participated in the event.
“We want to make sure that we’re providing the safest food at the highest quality. The only way to really do that is to keep track of each individual supplier on a regular basis. You have to turn to technology.” — Red Lobster Director of Total Quality and Food Safety Dennis Price.
Red Lobster has been leading the charge in delivering quality, sustainable seafood since 1968. And, with fans like Beyoncé, the brand has proven that excellence is to “Sea Food Differently,” particularly in terms of sourcing and standards. The Red Lobster commitment includes serving seafood “in ways that are traceable, sustainable, and responsible,” which is something that the entire food safety and quality team takes very seriously. Red Lobster Director of Total Quality and Food Safety Dennis Price spoke with FoodLogiQ on how his team leverages FoodLogiQ Connect auditing functionality to elevate standards throughout Red Lobster's global supply chain and ensure that the company is doing its part to protect ocean resources while serving customers across hundreds of locations.
