Ensuring traceability of animal proteins is a new requirement for every foodservice, grocery and packaged goods company. Ensure gate-to-plate traceability to minimize food safety concerns such as, e coli, salmonella and cross-contamination. Comply with new regulations such as Prop2 eggs, going into effect in California in Jan 2015. Address consumers’ demand for transparency in sourcing. The web of paperwork and data collection needed in your animal protein supply chain can be overwhelming and needs to be handled at every step.
Join Janice Neitzel and Steve Weiffenbach of Sustainable Solutions Group for a live event to learn about Gate-to-Dinner Plate tracking and documentation. In this free webinar, you’ll learn the importance of having company traceability policies in place to avoid these animal protein risks, such as:
- Ensuring the eggs you sell and serve in California in 2015 are Prop 2-Compliant
- Ensuring AMI’s humane handling transport
- Ensuring AMI meat plant animal welfare audit results
- Tracking growth promoters (antibiotics, beta agonists, etc.) in meat
- Tracking microbiological concerns (e coli, salmonella and more) in meat
- Tracking cross-contamination of species
Participants will leave understanding the importance of requiring suppliers to regularly send egg origin, humane handling audit and transport details, documentation of growth promoters and microbiological concerns, and supplier steps taken to eliminate the chance of species cross-contamination. Participants will understand the importance of having company policies in place to avoid these risks and the need to document the communication process and next steps for situations where compliance is not met.
