Food Safety Playbook

The Food Safety Playbook - for putting your packaging machines, materials and methods into compliance with best practices and the U.S. Food Safety Modernization Act.

Are you or the companies you do business with part in the U.S. food supply? Then you’re likely aware that the U.S. FDA has gained new powers under the the U.S. Food Safety Modernization Act. But the law, which has yet to be implemented, continues to raise questions, even for the largest brand leaders who comply with existing national and global food safety standards.

Download the Food Safety Playbook today.  With help from experts with experience inside the FDA as well as food and packaging companies, we’ve pored through every word, table, checklist and link to bring you the best guidance possible. Plus, we’ve added results from an exclusive survey of food packagers and a full section on food safety automation and I.T. systems.
