One of the three most critical food safety issues facing the food industry today is supply chain failures. With the U.S. initiated tariff wars activated, many types of food shipments are being and are likely to be impacted.

Supply chain failures can impact many aspects of a businesses functioning. Both incoming products and ingredients and outgoing final delays or failures can cause ripples throughout the supply chain that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to companies and their clients.

As the supply chain continues to become more and more complex, poor planning and the lack of defense systems against supply chain failures can cause losses in reputation, poor quality, failing food safety protection, substandard product delivery, share price decline, product recalls and many other problems

Why should you Attend: This webinar will review the issues surrounding the economic disruption caused by supply chain failures.

Risks, rules, foreseeable events, exposure, the social media and other critical issues will be covered.Lost productivity, revenue and reputation along with the panic that results should cause all companies to understand, plan for and do all they can to prevent supply chain failures.

This issue is increasingly critical for the food supply chain. Suppliers and receivers must recognize potential problems, assess risks and work alternative opportunities in order to survive these turbulent times. No food supply company can afford late or poor quality or food safety failures at any point in their process, but when incoming supplies are not where they should be or when they should be all downstream the consuming public may be detrimentally impacted, and many supply chain members are set to fail.

Food suppliers cannot afford supply chain failures, especially with regard to food safety and quality, but such failures occur on a daily basis throughout the industry. Companies need to begin to understand the risks involved and establish effective management approaches that help them to prevent and respond quickly to potential supply failures.
