‘Fresh, never frozen’ trend puts pressure on the cold supply chain as transparency remains vital to the food supply chain.

While plant cleanliness, allergen control and transparency were top food safety concerns over the past decade or so, fresher products and closer supply chain control will most likely dominate the next decade. As the tide turns to more healthy food and beverage consumption such as plant-based products and fresher foods, supply chain management is paramount. With American farmers concered about trade wars putting them out of business and growing fears about global warming affecting crops, food production worldwide is at risk. All food and beverage manufacturers must continue to maintain strigent food safety protocols, but small- to medium-sized processors must improve their traceability systems in order to be successful. As stricter food safety legislation is adopted, industry experts wonder if automated track and trace could become the law in the years to come.

To keep you up to date, here are five essential food safety reports from ProFood World:

  1. ‘Fresh, never frozen’ trend puts pressure on the cold supply chain

  2. Transparency vital to the food supply chain

  3. Cleaning and sanitation: the building blocks of food safety

  4. Get ahead of the pack by validating sanitation for allergen removal
