On December 24, 2013, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published the rule called “Focused Mitigation Strategies to Protect Food Against Intentional Adulteration”, which will require domestic and foreign food registered facilities to assess their operations to address hazards that may be intentionally introduced by acts of terrorism. This means that these food facilities would be required to have a written food defense plan.
This new proposed rule has raised questions and interest on assessing vulnerable processes in different operations; however, since this topic has been already discussed and incorporated in many business operations; there are already tools and resources that FDA and other entities have put together to facilitate the development and implementation of a food defense plan.
How is your operation doing? Are you aware of these tools? What do you know about food defense? This webinar is aimed at answering these and other questions, and will include a walk-through of a fictitious Agroterrorism event. Join us to learn about food defense in the Ag. Industry, share your thoughts and concerns.
