Are you prepared for the first Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) implementation deadline, coming up this September?
If you answered “no,” you’re in good company. In a survey earlier this spring by SafetyChain Software and The Acheson Group, only 1 in 4 respondents said they were totally ready.
To help food processors and packagers — and their suppliers — better understand what’s coming and how to prepare for it, we spoke with Carrie Hayden, President of Perry Johnson Food Safety Consulting, and some of Perry Johnson’s trainers and consultants about issues they see surrounding FSMA implementation.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll publish several articles resulting from these interviews. In this first one, we tackle some top challenges related to FSMA compliance and how to solve them.
