Columbus, OH (PRWEB) February 13, 2014
The United States is one of the most highly regulated countries in the world, and the laws which protect the food supply have created a comprehensive state-of-the-art platform that requires food manufacturers (producers) and their partners (grocery retailers) to prevent contamination in the food chain. METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to present a white paper that provides information about the current status of food safety in the United States for food retailers who are concerned about food safety and interested in advancing their organization’s preparedness. "Food Safety Regulations Are Changing: Are You Ready?” written by Katherine Cahill, provides information to help answer these and other common questions about the current status of food safety.
The Federal Food, Drug & Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), The Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act (Bioterrorism Act) and the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) are three federal laws that directly control the methods for food manufacturing and distribution of food products, as well as create indirect consequences for grocery retailers.
“In many cases, these indirect consequences have changed the way grocery retailers conduct business,” says Katherine Cahill, author of “Food Safety Regulations Are Changing: Are You Ready?” “Specifically, the grocery retail industry has started to put corporate governance process and procedures in place, which can prevent retailers from getting caught in a tidal wave of regulations that have a direct impact on their relationship with government regulators and the consuming public."
