The issue of compliance in the food industry is increasingly becoming more complex as public health is a critical issue. We also know that the consumer is increasingly becoming more savvy. Balancing this against an increasing frequency of litigation for non-compliances that affect consumers, companies need to be highly organised to mitigate this risk.
It is highly unlikely that there will be one single manual on the do’s and don’ts for such a large industry and long value chain. This document, in the interests of being easily usable, only contains the more pertinent and “in your face “issues that you should be aware of to at least enter the industry. Surviving is another game altogether – remember my first hint? This manual does not contain ALL you need to know but some of the more CRITICAL things you need to know.
