  • How Artificial Intelligence And Big Data Are Bolstering Food Safety
    How Artificial Intelligence And Big Data Are Bolstering Food Safety

    We're all familiar with China's past food safety issue with infant formula. But, past food safety events have taught many lessons for China, as well as the rest of the world. This article will detail some recent legislation that has led to advancements in food safety alerts, including liability insurance, and how artificial intelligence is helping shape the future of food safety.

  • What Can Be Done To Prevent Fraudulent Supply Chains?
    What Can Be Done To Prevent Fraudulent Supply Chains?

    Food fraud is a big topic at the moment and there are multiple challenges within any supply chain, especially these days where supply chains are global, have multiple players and where profits can be huge. In this column, I will detail some of the major obstacles in the organic food supply chain and show some practical applications which can reduce fraud within it.

  • Update Current Preventive Controls To Bolster Your Pest Control Programs
    Update Current Preventive Controls To Bolster Your Pest Control Programs

    Spring has arrived, and while that means warmer days are ahead, it also means the return of the risk of pests to food manufacturing facilities. Rodents, birds, and insects are risks to food and can be sources of contamination by transmitting pathogenic bacteria, such as E. coli and Salmonella, to your products.

  • The ABCs Of An Allergen Control Plan
    The ABCs Of An Allergen Control Plan

    One way or another, most of us are subject to the statutory and regulatory provisions of FSMA. While some of these provisions are merely codifications of good manufacturing practices (GMPs), others are new and different requirements. Here, I discuss allergen control plans, why you need one, and some of the things that should be included within one.

FOOD MANUFACTURING WHITE PAPER

  • How To Ensure Your Beverage Package Quality

    The global beverage manufacturing and packaging industry is one of the most efficient processes in the world. Because of the enormous scale of the current beverage industry, American, European and Asian beverage manufacturers are becoming increasingly better equipped at manufacturing and packaging beverages at high speeds.

The Importance Of Mixer Testing And Selection

This white paper explains the rules for mixers and the applications for which two, three, or even four different types of mixers can conceivably provide an optimal tool to achieve your process goals.

How FSMA Is Impacting Pet Food And Animal Feed

The melamine contamination of pet food in 2007 generated over 14,000 reports in the first four weeks after it was discovered. A salmonella outbreak in South Carolina led to a recall of 30,000 tons of dry dog and cat food after 47 people became sick after handling the contaminated food. Unlike safeguards in place to protect human food, there were no regulations governing most animal foods during those food safety events. Now, under FSMA, the FDA has a rule for preventive controls for food for animals going into effect in late summer 2015. How will this rule affect the industry?

A Beginner's Guide To Food Manufacturing And ERP Software

Investing in integrated business software is a large undertaking and not something to be taken lightly. This article addresses the tasks and processes involved in implementation and how to overcome them.

ERP Becomes A Vital Tool In Helping Food And Beverage Manufacturers Define And Establish Compliance Procedures

The penalty for non-compliance in the food and beverage industry is severe—one slip through the net in food and beverage can seriously harm consumers, reputation, profits and can ultimately lead to a shutdown in operations. A recent PricewaterhouseCoopers report states that in the food and beverage market this decade, there have already been hundreds of large-scale recalls, typically costing $10 million to $30 million.
