Web seminar summary of Product Development – How Product Developers affect Food Safety

The introduction of new ingredients and packaging can be disastrous for a food company. That is if it isn’t done methodically, it can lead to the introduction of new hazards into the process. Therefore, the R&D Department must be in continuous communication with key stakeholders in the manufacturing side. This ensures that the new introductions are not only compatible with existing processes but also that a hazard analysis is done to ensure food safety.
