THE CHALLENGES OF IMPROVING FOOD SAFETY – How HorizonScan Can Be Used in Business For Real-Time Alerting To Make Those Informed Decisions.
Not all companies can quickly identify the cause of a food safety incident, or an emerging issue, as tracing food across a global food supply chain takes days, if not weeks, as companies struggle to track a mix of digital and paper-based food data documentation across a complex and growing network of suppliers and distributors.
Gaps in supply chain monitoring create vulnerabilities combine this with deficiencies in production and monitoring processes expose the food system to vulnerabilities that could be eliminated. For example, researchers found that a significant number of food safety alerts were due to a lack of supply chain transparency, which permitted food fraud and other risks to occur.
Outdated food traceability practices aren’t built for the modern era with regulators now demanding state-of-the-art practices and modern technologies to ensure better food safety. HorizonScan can help bring organisations do exactly that, with real-time intelligence of global raw material and commodity issues covering all areas of food integrity. Complimenting this introduction to HorizonScan, is an independent food specialist consultant, who has introduced HorizonScan to many organisations within the food industry, including fully integrating into an ERP system. Listen to the benefits this system can deliver from an independent voice.

With the constant demand for change and the continuing challenge to meet consumer demands, improving supply chain transparency is a high priority for companies, especially in industries such as the food and beverage industry where consumers and regulators are pushing for more information on how products are made. Incorporating software technology like HorizonScan into your armoury, can ensure effective supply chain visibility together with aiding a well-developed traceability strategy allowing you, as an organisation to see where each ingredient came from with any increasing or emerging issues associated with it.
This end-to-end visibility is the key to resilient supply chains and becomes especially important when facing disruptions in the supply chain or crisis situations such as recalls, like the very current fipronil issue. This allows you as an organisations to significantly reduce supply chain risk by enabling the company to either take action to prevent disasters or to respond to disruption by activating backup plans.
