NZ: Food forum panel discussion on food safety culture
New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries: Defined as “the collective food safety practices used within an organisation”, a culture of food safety is built on a set of shared assumptions, behaviours, and values that organisations and their employees embrace to produce and provide safe food and also meet consumers’ expectations.
This panel discussion focuses on how New Zealand can progress its own journey. Panelists: Frank Yiannas, Author of ‘Food Safety Culture’ and VP Food Safety Wal-Mart / Prof Alan Reilly, Adjunct professor, Institute of Food and Health, University College, Dublin and former Chief Executive of the Food Safety Authority of Ireland / Katherine Rich, Chief Executive, Food and Grocery Council
The Food Protection Forum was a one day conference for leaders in the food industry to learn about the importance of a food safety culture and food defence in protecting New Zealand’s economy, reputation and consumers globally.
