RQA Celebrates 35 Years Helping Organizations Prepare for the Unexpected

World Food Safety Day 2024World Food Safety Day is being recognized on June 7, 2024, and this year’s theme is “Food Safety: Prepare For The Unexpected”. The focus is on inspiring action to prepare for food safety incidents no matter how mild or severe they may be. Food safety incidents impact consumer health, livelihoods, businesses and brand reputation, however, organizations can be ready if this is prioritized around the world to protect the supply chain.

RQA supports this theme by providing consulting, training, and on demand field services to our clients throughout the year, not just on World Food Safety Day. Some thought starters for your organization to consider are:

  • Identifying and vetting a trusted partner to support product recall, market withdrawal and effectiveness checks and compliant retrievals
  • Developing proactive quality programs, such as supplier monitoring and supplier scorecards to ensure quality is always front of mind
  • Conducting surveillance audits to assess quality at point of purchase and consumption to build understanding of consumer/customer experience and expectations
  • Providing focused training to build the skillset of staff and leadership teams including food safety culture, recall simulations, crisis simulations, etc.
  • Assessing your Food Safety Culture journey and building a multi-year plan to continuously improve

No matter who you are or what you do, YOU play an important role in making sure food is safe to eat. Food Safety Is Everyone’s Business! Are you ready for the unexpected?
