TraceGains Presents with Food Safety Author Preston Blevins


Westminster, CO -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/07/2013 -- Next week TraceGains will be presenting at the 4th Annual Next Level Food Chain Summit from October 8-9 at Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort, Phoenix, Arizona.

Gary Nowacki, CEO of TraceGains will be co-presenting with Preston Blevins, Advisor, Consultant, and Author. The presentation will be October 8th at 9:00 am and is entitled, “Tracking and Managing Supplier Risk.” During the discussion Nowacki and Blevins will be covering topics such as:

- Supplier risk is directly related to economic performance, commitment to productivity improvement, and food safety regulatory compliance in a global competitive supply-chain
- Productivity improvement and regulatory compliance themselves are interrelated, as both are dependent on data accuracy and reliable processes
- To compete effectively in the face of global realities, systems and processes are needed that scale rapidly without adding cost, labor, or other friction and inefficiencies

The 4th annual Food Chain Summit features the ideal peer-to-peer networking environment for top-level executives in Supply Chain, Distribution, Manufacturing and many other related fields within the food industry. The Summit will include a “Must Attend Event” featuring thought leaders from the world’s leading food manufacturers discussing the key issues affecting the current and future growth of your business.
