Copy of Email BC July 2020 1300x470 Embedding a Powerful Food Safety Culture (1)

About the Webinar

Food safety culture has been labeled an emerging risk in the food industry, yet Lone Jespersen, Ph.D., and Laura Nelson see it as a life- and brand-saving opportunity. Building a culture that prioritizes food and human safety is the single most important action F&B companies can take to reduce accidents, rework, and recalls as we emerge from COVID-19 challenges. Embedding a strong food safety culture is one thing - the real question is, “how do companies make it stick in the current environment?

Join the food industry’s two leading experts on organizational change management and food safety culture as they teach food industry leaders, managers, and operators how to build a transformative food safety culture that will stand the test of time.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How to create change - with real-life examples from two leading F&B companies
  • Ways to anchor a new set of food safety beliefs into your business
  • Tactics to boost employee engagement
  • Concrete methods to measure the progress of cultural change
  • Secrets for sustaining culture change in a busy company

Remember: The strength of a food safety culture is measured by what happens on the floor when you’re not there. If you’re not 100% confident that what goes on in your absence is the same as when you're present, register yourself and your staff and spend 60 minutes with us - it might be the most critical hour of your career!
