Over the years, the need for food safety has grown exponentially due to the emergence of countless global ingredients, expanding supply chains, and high-profile food contamination stories that have captured the public’s attention. Contamination reduces the shelf life of your products and increases spoilage which drives up your total costs in a competitive marketplace.
Cross-contamination in the food production process is inevitable, but companies can minimize its occurrence through appropriate measures. Partnering with a food safety specialist like QSS provides access to best practices and ensures those practices are implemented consistently.
