For those who would like to attend both workshops (Food Recall & Navigating Food Regulation Maze), we are offering a combo deal – 2 workshops on the one day!

 

Food Recall Workshop

Tuesday, 30 July 2019, 8.30am - 12.30pm
 
Having policies and procedures in place for a food or beverage product recall is one thing, executing them is another.
This workshop will help you to understand how even the simplest oversights can derail an otherwise sound procedure. You will learn to evaluate the who, what, where, when and why of recalls and how a properly handled recall not only effectively protects the consumer, but also allows for the public image of a company to improve.
 
Find out:
- How to maintain a recall plan that is relevant to your business
- That a mock recall is more than just a traceability exercise
- Whether you have the resources to manage a recall
- The common pitfalls of recall execution
- What to look for in a product recall insurance policy
 
The workshop is built around a recall simulation exercise designed to challenge and provide opportunities to learn
.
This workshop is suitable for food and beverage business owners, Managers, Food Safety and Quality Assurance Managers, Technical Managers, Food Recall Coordinators and Recall team members.
 

 

Navigating the Food Regulation Maze

Tuesday, 30 July 2019, 1.30pm - 4.30pm
 
Food regulation can be confusing! 
 
Do you ever ask yourself "How do I know if the ingredients I want to use in my new product are approved and safe?"
 
Or what about... "How do I know what I can or can’t say about my product?"
 
Whether you are entering the food industry or just trialling new products, learn more about the regulations that can protect your products and your consumers.
But don’t despair – there are tools to help with compliance – find out the latest on the AFGC PIF V6.0 and how it can help your business collect and manage the information needed to assist with regulatory compliance.
