Transportation and Logistics food transportation food safety rules are currently being finalized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Under congressional instructions, the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requires the FDA to establish rules to improve, audit and enforce new food transportation rules. The rules provide a significant focus on foods not completely enclosed by a container, risk-reducing adulteration prevention, personnel training and certification, inspection and data collection, maintenance and reporting that provides evidence of compliance.
In this two-day workshop conference you will learn the legal requirements, how to develop a company plan that meets FDA and your customer requirements. You will review and learn how to establish appropriate temperature monitoring, sanitation, container test and traceability, training and data reporting procedures.
New low-cost GPS enabled traceability and temperature monitoring technology, EPA-approved container sanitizers, washout technologies, temperature maintenance equipment, and food residue and bio-contaminant testing will be presented.
The session will also review the future of transportation food safety in light of new and evolving technologies. References to upcoming technology providers and Internet links to detailed information will be provided.
