Food Safety Audits Trick or Treat
Westminster, CO -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/30/2013 -- In an effort to best capture the process of food audits, TraceGains wants to hear about “the worst food audit experiences.” According to Gary Nowacki, TraceGains’ CEO, “Telling these stories is cathartic. It allows people at food manufacturers and processors to finally share food audit experiences in a friendly yet anonymous setting. This is the antidote to the audit venom. We encourage and request all food safety and quality professionals to share their stress and nightmare food audit experiences.”
Food Safety News writer, Bill Marler opined two months ago that, “Food safety programs are the crazy uncles of corporate food production – everyone has one, but no one really wants to talk about it. Corporate management on average is far more interested in sales and profits and would just as soon ignore those people who talk incessantly about a ‘culture of food safety,’ or ‘food safety from farm to fork.’”
The data that all food companies require to perform food audits with ease is accessible with the proper technology. Food audits can be easily conduction and need not be a horror story.
For the next six weeks TraceGains will collect food audit story submissions and will recognize the top 3 audit submissions with a Kindle Fire HDX 7” tablet.
The deadline for submission is December 18, 2013. Enter at: http://www.tracegains.com/audit-horror-story.html
