Food manufacturers are challenged to eliminate opportunities for contamination by potential allergens as well as effectively communicate allergen risk in products to consumers.
(PRWEB) September 08, 2014
Approximately 2 percent of adults and 8 percent of children experience food allergies, and those numbers appears to be rising. Food manufacturers are challenged to eliminate opportunities for contamination by potential allergens as well as effectively communicate allergen risk in products to consumers.
SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company has partnered with METTLER TOLEDO, a global provider of weighing and product inspection systems, to offer a live webinar on allergen management. The webinar will be held twice from 10 to 11 a.m. GMT and 4 to 5 p.m. EST on Sept. 24, 2014.
Allergen and food manufacturing experts will explain how the right weighing solutions and services can help you reduce allergen and labeling risk. They also will discuss how to optimize communication on allergen risks to consumers. Additional topics include a discussion of a recent SGS survey highlighting industry practices on allergen management; traceability and ID points in raw material handling; post-production label control with vision inspection; hygienically designed equipment as part of key cleaning principles; and retail solutions for clear consumer information.
