Supplier Quality Management

Food and beverage (F&B) companies are under more pressure today than any time in recent history.  The need to globalize to meet growing customer demand, coupled with increasing merger & acquisition activity make it challenging for F&B manufacturers to cost effectively manage the quality of the ingredients and materials across the supply chain.  New regulations, such as the FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), are compelling F&B manufacturers to have supplier and importer quality management procedures in place. As a result, these organizations are looking for ways to create greater transparency into their suppliers’ and contract vendors’ operations and quality processes to ensure that products meet safety and quality requirements.
