At Dole Fresh Vegetables, food safety & quality assurance (FSQA) is front-of-mind all day, every day.

In this informative 60-minute webcast, Dole Fresh Vegetable’s Food Safety Manager Nye Hardy will share her team’s initiatives to:

  • Proactively ensure supplier compliance in the field – pre-harvest, during harvest and post-harvest – for Food Safety specifications, policies and Standard Operating Procedures
  • Conduct immediate Food Safety assessments from data sent via mobile devices – with realtime alerts when corrective actions are required
  • Respond to regulatory, non-regulatory and customer audits “on demand”
  • Have realtime traceability access to the electronic Food Safety “paper chain” for mock and potential recalls

Nye will also share her experiences with:

  • Promoting technology adoption in the field
  • Gaining project buy-in
  • Results, success, lessons learned and future phases
