LRQA Webinar attracts over 200 Food Safety Experts

On 22 October, food safety professionals from over 45 countries joined LRQA for two free food safety webinars.

Fons Schmid, Chairman of the Board of Stakeholders of FSSC 22000, shared his insight and experience with an update on the GFSI-approved FSSC 22000 scheme and their plans for the future.

Cor Groenveld, LRQA’s Global Head of Food Supply Chain Services continued with an overview of international developments in food safety and discussed the range of GFSI recognised schemes, including the GFSI Global Markets Program, which is “a capacity building program for small and/or less developed businesses that will develop effective food safety management systems through a systematic continuous improvement process.

Cor and Fons then answered a number of attendees’ questions, covering topics from unannounced audits, to animal feed, and the regulation of pesticides. A recording of the webinar is now available.
