The Essential Elements of Successful Food Quality Teams


Review the indispensable factors to creating a strong food quality management program that sets your quality team and overall brand up for success.

There’s no denying that food quality management is a constant and ever-evolving process. By nature, this series of practices used to ensure that products meet industry, brand and consumer standards must shift and adapt to guarantee that goods are safe and fit for consumption. This is  especially true as regulations continue to expand, new products are brought to market and consumer demands, such as those surrounding transparency and sustainability, shift.

Learn about the role food quality assurance plays across the industry, as well as the importance of adopting digitized methods in support of the future of traceability.

While quality assurance (QA) is an indisputably vital factor across industries and their respective supply chains, it is of utmost importance within the food supply chain. Food quality assurance consists of a series of practices utilized by food and beverage companies to guarantee that their products are meeting industry, brand and consumer standards, in addition to safety regulations. In turn, these practices generate consumer trust, allowing customers to develop confidence in these brands and their ability to satisfy quality requirements, as well as generate products that are safe for consumption.

How Dine Brands Increases Value Cross-Functionally with FoodLogiQ Connect


Learn how Dine Brands Global Quality Assurance Specialist Jason Brown is leveraging the FoodLogiQ Connect platform to drive business continuity throughout the company, whose brands represent 6,000 restaurant locations worldwide.

Dine Brands Global is one of the world's largest full service dining companies in the world, and franchises two iconic brands, Applebee's and IHOP. A customer since 2018, the Dine Brands Quality Assurance team has evolved their programs by leveraging the FoodLogiQ Connect platform for years. Dine Brands’ current approach to food quality and safety? Building value through new efficiencies and superior visibility. 

Value-building is not always the first thing that comes to mind when one mentions food safety or quality assurance. As Dine Brands Quality Assurance Specialist Jason Brown points out, “Quality Assurance is not known as the money-making part of the organization.” The philosophy of building value is more often claimed by business units like franchise operations, advertising or innovation. Many believe that the importance of protecting customers, delivering top-tier, traceable ingredients and resolving incidents swiftly are investments reflected in red on their company’s balance sheet. And, when things are going well, quality and safety can remain out of sight, out of mind. “You don't really think about the things that are going on behind the scenes,” says Brown, “The restaurant doesn't care about how long it takes to get a credit until they need a credit.”

However, the Dine Brands team is proving that, armed with the right digital tools, value-building is something Quality Assurance can drive on a fundamental level.
