Food Safety Management: A Practical Guide for the Food Industry with an Honorable Mention for Single Volume Reference/Science in the 2015 PROSE Awards from the Association of American Publishers is the first book to present an integrated, practical approach to the management of food safety throughout the production chain. While many books address specific aspects of food safety, no other book guides you through the various risks associated with each sector of the production process or alerts you to the measures needed to mitigate those risks. Using practical examples of incidents and their root causes, this book highlights pitfalls in food safety management and provides key insight into the means of avoiding them. Each section addresses its subject in terms of relevance and application to food safety and, where applicable, spoilage. It covers all types of risks (e.g., microbial, chemical, physical) associated with each step of the food chain. The book is a reference for food safety managers in different sectors, from primary producers to processing, transport, retail and distribution, as well as the food services sector. Honorable Mention for Single Volume Reference/Science in the 2015 PROSE Awards from the Association of American Publishers Addresses risks and controls (specific technologies) at various stages of the food supply chain based on food type, including an example of a generic HACCP study Provides practical guidance on the implementation of elements of the food safety assurance system Explains the role of different stakeholders of the food supply

Every food manufacturing and processing operation has inherent risks affecting the safety of food products. Non-thermally processed foods are not exempt of those risks. This chapter provides the reader with an overview of various non-thermal technologies (e.g. irradiation, pulsed electric fields, high hydrostatic pressure, intense pulsed lights, membrane filtration and hurdle technology). Each of these technologies has specific critical process parameters that must be monitored as part of critical control points. In-depth understanding of these technologies is the key while considering their implementation. The main challenge on non-thermal processes is standardization when compared to thermal treatments. Non-thermal processes seem to be product specific resulting in additional research work to define process parameters. Nevertheless, a significant amount of research data are available and specific process conditions can be found in the literature.

The safety of food products is fundamental. The value of an effective and well-defined, -implemented, and -maintained management system is priceless. When it is integrated into a process, it supplies the necessary foundation and structure to help provide the consumer with a safe product of the highest quality. Food Safety Management Programs: Applications, Best Practices, and Compliance presents the insight and shared experiences that can be applied to the development, implementation, and maintenance of an effective food safety management system. The text supplies useful tools that can be applied according to the particular needs of an operation, adding value to its processes and aiding in the establishment of a successful management-based food safety system. The author also encourages the development of a quality management system. The text begins by summarizing Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) food safety schemes (eight as of the writing of this text). These include FSSC 22000, Safe Quality Food Code (SQF), British Retail Consortium Global Standard for Food Safety (BRC), International Featured Standards (IFS), Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA) Seafood Processing Standard, Global Red Meat Standard (GRMS), CanadaGAP, and PrimusGFS. It also lists websites for additional information and updates. Although this text focuses on food safety management systems (FSMS), it also includes references to ISO 9001, along with the quality requirements of some of the food safety management standards. It offers information that can be applied to whichever standard is chosen by an organization. With insights from experts in a variety of food industry-related sectors, the text explains the requirements of the standards, methods for their integration, and the process for identifying and addressing gaps in a manner that is both compliant and beneficial for the organization. The book provides experience-based information that can be integrated into any operation, which is essential for the development of an efficient, value-added, and sustainable management system.

Abstract : This study considers the influence of food subcultures within the food manufacturing environment and the adoption of food safety management practices. The influence of diversity within the overarching food safety culture of a food manufacturing operation is discussed through the use of case studies. Following a review of the literature, four subcultures were proposed (i.e., executive, operations, engineering, and technical / quality) each with its own unique identity and modus operandi . Understanding the interaction of these subcultures within the visible and invisible elements of food safety culture is critical to prevent a food safety incident and associated recall.

This foodborne disease outbreak prevention manual is the first of its kind for the retail food service industry. Respected public health professional Hal King helps the reader understand, design, and implement a food safety management system that will achieve Active Managerial Control in all retail food service establishments, whether as part of a multi-restaurant chain or for multi-restaurant franchisees. According to the most recently published data by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), retail food service establishments are the most commonly reported locations (60%) leading to foodborne disease outbreaks in the United States every year. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has reported that in order to effectively reduce the major foodborne illness risk factors in retail food service, a food service business should use Food Safety Management Systems (FSMS); however less than 11% of audited food service businesses in a 2018 report were found using a well-documented FSMS. Clearly, there needs to be more focus on the prevention of foodborne disease illnesses and outbreaks in retail food service establishments. The purpose of this book is to help retail food service businesses implement FSMS to achieve Active Managerial Control (AMC) of foodborne illness risk factors. It is a key resource for retail professionals at all levels of the retail food service industry, and those leaders tasked to build and manage food safety departments within these organizations.

There were series of food scandals and scares all over the world which staggered consumers’ confidence in food safety and in the food chain. Consumers worried about new technologies, any existing and perceived risks being out of their control. Food production is more complex than ever and several ethical issues are raised in relation to agricultural practices and the food supply chain. Making good ethical decisions requires a trained sensitivity to ethical issues and a practiced method for exploring the ethical aspects of a decision. The more novel and difficult the ethical choice we face, the more we need to rely on discussion and dialogue with others about the dilemma. A dialogue about the ethical implications of food production, processing, policy, supply and consumption may help involved partners making better decisions.

Foreign bodies are a major reason for consumer complaints in the food industry. The application of good manufacturing practice and hazard analysis throughout the whole food supply chain, “from plant to plate,” is the most effective way to prevent and reduce contamination and thereby protect consumers. In addition, detection equipment is part of the foreign body management system, working in combination with upstream control measures to minimize the likelihood of product contamination. Detection equipment acts like an alarm to warn about weaknesses in control measures. This chapter presents basic working principles of metal detectors and X-ray equipment, some key rules to select the most adequate equipment and necessary concepts for their management.
