FIRESIDE CHAT: A REGULATOR’S POV

Glean Insight from a Regulator’s Lessons Learned over 2020

COVID-19 kept regulators on their toes with respect to food and beverage safety, on top of continuing the testing of innovations already in the works pre-February’20. Hear from Canada’s Chief Food Safety Officer exactly what’s been keeping her and her team busy the past 18 months. Benefit from learning about new technologies being used in order that you may:

  • Reduce the risk of non-compliance
  • Evaluate the impacts of a dynamic regulatory landscape on your organization
  • Gain awareness and prepare for challenges that lie ahead
Pivot your processes with the knowledge of what keeps our/your regulator up at night.

PANEL DISCUSSION

The Small Business Food & Beverage Landscape and The Safety Challenges They Face

SMBs are at the heart of our economy, and the food industry has no shortage of them. Delve into the top issues and challenges that innovative companies encounter. Uncover how they manage to thrive despite the lack of in-house safety and regulatory staff — and, in some cases, when the development and manufacturing is outsourced.  Leverage SMB’s secrets to profitability by:

  • Capitalizing on funds and services using government resources
  • Establishing supply chain partners – and trusting them
  • Scoping out cost-effective opportunities for export

Take note of the innovative and creative entrepreneurial endeavours of SMBs — they could be your future partners!
