Register for the Food Defense Management Workshop AND the Food Fraud Workshop on Wednesday, October 11, 2018 and save $50 off your total price.

Thursday, Oct. 11, 2018 | 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Due to the sweeping regulatory change brought on by the Food Safety Modernization Act, and requirements of Preventative Control rules and Global Food Safety Initiative, companies are faced with meeting new compliance requirements. This workshop is designed to help attendees become familiar with strategies for reducing the risk of food fraud, strengthening their supply chain through hands on examples using USP tools. General Guidance for Food Ingredients (GGFI) provides guidelines for developing and implementing a preventive management system to deal specifically with intentional, economically motivated fraudulent adulteration of food ingredients. It provides a qualitative, step-wise, and structured approach divided into four major steps for carrying out ingredient-by-ingredient assessments.

Attendees will be provided with:

  • Hard copies of USP’s Food Fraud Mitigation Guidance
  • General Guidance for Food Ingredients four-step process for assessments.
  • Knowledge on the current state of the industry and necessary next steps to help protect public health from the risks of adulterated food.
  • The activities and progress on food fraud initiatives in other parts of the world — most notably Europe and China.
