Having policies and procedures in place for a food or beverage product recall is one thing, executing them is another.
AIFST is pleased to be hosting a comprehensive workshop to help you develop the skills necessary to implement a program to evaluate and test the recall policies and procedures in place in your business.
This workshop will help you to understand how even the simplest oversights can derail an otherwise sound procedure. You will learn to evaluate the who, what, where, when and why of recalls and how a properly handled recall not only effectively protects the consumer, but also allows for the public image of a company to improve.
- How to maintain a recall plan that is relevant to your business
- That a mock recall is more than just a traceability exercise
- Whether you have the resources to manage a recall
- The common pitfalls of recall execution
- What to look for in a product recall insurance policy
The workshop is built around a recall simulation exercise designed to challenge and provide opportunities to learn.
This workshop is suitable for food and beverage business owners, Managers, Food Safety and Quality Assurance Managers, Technical Managers, Food Recall Coordinators and Recall team members.
