Our piece, pundit’s Pulse Of The Industry: Chilled Food Association’s Kaarin Goodburn, brought to our pages a different perspective, from across the pond, on food safety practices in the produce industry.
Kaarin has also been good enough to share a presentation that details the way they see the supply chain for produce. These three slides are key:
In the U.K., because so much of the food safety regimen is retail-driven, the Chilled Food Association members represent a high standard that is required to sell to Tesco, ASDA, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Marks and Spencer, etc. Others operate under legal standards that are not as demanding.
We appreciate Kaarin’s sending along the information. You can access the whole presentation here.
