Countdown to GFSC 2018 Tokyo; how seafood assurance helps deliver safe food for consumers everywhere

In a few weeks, over a thousand food safety professionals will gather in Tokyo for the GFSI Global Food Safety Conference (GFSC) to share knowledge and best practice and to discuss the most significant food safety risks and challenges facing the industry.

With the theme for this year’s conference being ‘Safe food for consumers everywhere’ Lloyd’s Register (LR) will be showcasing their range of assurance solutions, which they currently deliver to over 33,000 clients in the food and beverage sector alone.

“Independent assurance underpins safe food,” said Duane Wood, Marketing Director - Management Systems & Inspection Services, Lloyd’s Register (LR). “With stakeholder demands for safe, high quality food that’s produced in a sustainable and ethical way driving change and increasing pressure across the supply chain, ensuring your business has the right compliance partner is more important than ever.”

LR has built a portfolio of assurance solutions with client’s needs in mind, with many services now underpinned with modern technology to enable real-time reporting for multi-site customers. “Whether it’s audits, training or client specific solutions, we’ve got the skills, global reach and sector specific experience in place to improve organizational performance and help protect our clients’ brands,” summarized Wood.

Building on the campaign theme, LR has a new blog series to support their participation at GFSC 2018, the first of which focuses on the value of accredited seafood assurance in driving consumer trust and best practice for aquaculture suppliers.

LR will be exhibiting at the 2018 Global Food Safety Conference in Tokyo from 5th - 8th March.
