Why Food Safety in Practice?
Now, more than ever, food manufacturers are under pressure from customers and regulators to ensure the quality and safety of their products. As compliance with Food Safety Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) standards states the practice of specific food handling controls, New Zealand manufacturers need to have a predetermined food safety program in place. As the subject matter expert in the prevention of foreign object contamination and food safety Robert Rogers, on behalf of METTLER TOLEDO, can assist New Zealand manufacturers with best practice guidance on how to develop a food safety program to suit their requirements.
