It is imperative for the produce industry to identify and understand the cause or causes of food safety system failures during growing, harvesting and post-harvest operations. Root Cause Analysis is a method of evaluating failures and involves a systematic process to determine how and why a failure occurred. This approach is commonly applied to process improvement and it is vital to a produce safety system. This webinar will cover key concepts and tools available to conduct a root cause analysis. In addition, our featured speaker will share a case study to illustrate this process.
