What you are going to learn

Develop a Positive Culture of Food Safety

Whether you realize it or not, every company has some type of culture that resonates throughout its employees! 

All major retailer and GFSI standards now require the development and implementation of a Food Safety Culture (FSC) Program. 


FSC is becoming a common non-conformance in food safety audits. Although having certified food safety management systems in place, the food industry still suffers from incidents such as product recalls, food poisoning outbreaks and allergen contamination. The one common factor in every incident is people and the way they behave.
