The presenters will be Debby Newslow, President, D.L. Newslow & Associates, Inc. who will share a presentation: Prerequisite requirement programs for successful supplier management.
Gary Nowacki, CEO, TraceGains will offer a demonstration: Automated supplier risk and compliance management. According to Nowacki, “Hazards come from two places; we add them or we receive them from our suppliers. We will share what should be expected from an effective supplier management program and who is ultimately responsible for the safety of the products & materials received from suppliers.”
The webinar will look at how confident company executives should be when justifying the control of a hazard through an approved supplier program and the percentage of recalls is traced to supplier issues.
Identify those suppliers critical to food safety and quality.
Perform a hazard assessment and define the hazards
Identify the potential risk and significance of the hazard
Justify our decision based on facts, scientific information and historical data
How do we effectively monitor supplier performance?
What if your supplier does not see the value of compliance?
The webinar will allow attendees to learn about how to effectively and automatically manage supplier compliance with business and regulatory needs, so that there is a better focus on problem solving rather than problem finding.
