Global Food Safety Standards for the Supply Chain


The food supply has become more global, giving the public access to a wider array of foods.

The independent, non-profit Global Food Safety Initiative has emerged as a way to address the safety and quality of the global food supply. Many leading food companies have achieved certification to a GFSI benchmark standard.

Progressive Grocer invites readers to join executives from Publix, U.S. Foodservice, Tyson and NSF International at 2 p.m. EDT Thursday, May 12, for a 75-minute webcast in which they’ll share their global food safety implementation experiences, challenges and how GFSI has impacted its segment of the food supply chain.

Speakers are Michael Roberson, director of corporate quality assurance, Publix Super Markets Inc.; Jorge Hernandez, senior VP of food safety and quality, U.S. Foodservice; Suzanne Finstad, director of food safety and regulatory compliance, Tyson Foods; and Robert Prevendar, director of food safety certification systems, NSF International. The moderator is Jim Dudlicek, senior editor of Progressive Grocer.
