FSMA Friday: Using Monthly Inspections as a Tool for Pre-Requisite Program Verification

Your Next FSMA Friday Topic:

Most food manufacturers conduct regular internal inspections to verify FSMA or GFSI requirements are being met - BUT, why then do so many struggle to assess the monthly health of their food safety programs?

Join us to learn how to identify and correct weaknesses in the verification processes to accurately monitor facility and hygiene program effectiveness, and what tools can help streamline both internal and external audits.

In this webinar you will learn specific tools to help you:

  • Identify gaps in your Prerequisite Programs, and how build in more controls
  • Share pertinent food safety data during regular management meetings
  • Ensure data is ready for annual verification of programs and auditor assessments
