When it comes to food manufacturing, the pet food industry isn’t always in agreement on how to properly test and inspect pet food products. While it’s true that pets aren’t people (although some might argue with that!) it’s still critical to reduce the number of pet food recalls that have been steadily rising in recent years. Setting standardized industry guidelines that improve safety in pet food manufacturing can do much to reduce pet illnesses and fatalities due to foodborne illness.
Investing in a solid employee training program is one way to cut down on the risks associated with toxic pet food related incidents. By incorporating the right interactive courseware that teaches pertinent topics, and a suite of digital tools that can facilitate successful adult learning methods and reinforcement elements, you can empower your workforce to be a food safety defense system.
Following are some tips to keep in mind as you begin to develop initiatives that drive operational excellence in pet food manufacturing.
