OPENING KEYNOTE: THE FDA TECH DIRECTIVE

Is Digital Transformation the Answer to our Industry’s Safety Challenges?

In July 2020, the FDA announced its blueprint for the NEW ERA OF SMARTER FOOD SAFETY. The initiative discussed leveraging technology and other tools to create a safer, more digital and traceable food system. Delve into the reasoning behind the blueprint as well as the latest pilot test learnings used to increase traceability throughout the chain. Take back fresh ideas to help your organization:

  • Exceed the FDA’s expectations
  • Determine what this means for your local (Canadian) operations
  • Investigate technology solutions that can truly make a difference in regulatory safety adherence for organizations on both sides of the border

Hear exclusive insights straight from the horse’s mouth (so to speak) to ensure your competitors aren’t leaving you in the dust.
