Ask the Experts: Supplier Verification Approaches

Tim Ahn, Sr. Food Safety Technical Manager, LRQA

Supplier verification is a key component to managing food safety within your company’s supply chain. Together with ingredient hazard assessments, specifications, and purchasing contracts, supplier verification activities such as audits and testing form the basis of an effective supply chain program. 3rd party certification schemes and company specific audit programs can be used to assess the control of hazards within your supply chain. During this presentation, Tim will answer questions and share perspective on industry approaches to supply chain verification.
