Westminster, CO -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/17/2014 -- The December TraceGains' newsletter, Industry Insider, reported on food fraud as a growing concern to food processors and others in the food chain. As a result, the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), the global consortium dedicated to improving food safety for consumers, proposed adding two requirements to its GFSI Guidance Document – which apparently will result in new rules in 2016 for its recognized and widely mandated inspection programs.
The newsletter invited food industry professional to complete the FSQA Professional Survey. Every year, Food Safety and Quality Assurance (FSQA) professionals are faced with new opportunities and new challenges. In 2014, FSQA professionals reported FSMA compliance, audit readiness, and process improvement as top priorities.
The FSQA Survey is available at this link:
TraceGains' Industry Insider covered the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) final regulation that will bring consistency and reliability to the nutritional information offered at chain restaurants. It included grocery stores, ruling that restaurants' recipes are as formulaic as the menu boards at fast-food restaurants.
