In his session, Nessen will discuss how food processors can establish or enhance a comprehensive Food Safety Management System to improve operations and protect their brands to meet the requirements of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Sharing real-life examples, Nessen will cover how necessary elements such as eHACCP, MOM, traceability and integrated ERP can work together to enable full FSMA compliance while improving current operations and further enhancing a processor’s brand throughout the entire enterprise.
