“Food safety events pose the largest risk to the brand reputation and financial health of food companies – and mitigating these risks starts with supply chain controls and operational best practices for food safety. Today, technology is playing a bigger role in supplier and overall food safety risk mitigation initiatives – and we’re very excited to have Ms. Wilson and Dr. Acheson share their insights on these topics with our community,” said Barbara Levin, SafetyChain SVP and co-founder.
