Food Safety Culture Measurement - How and Why it Minimises Contingency Liability Costs

Posted by on in Food Safety Training

Food Safety Culture Measurement

What is Food Safety Culture?

In simple terms culture is about How, Why and When we practice Food safety. 


Why focus on Food Safety Culture?

Several global food safety investigations and reports, that have followed food safety break-downs, such as the Listeria outbreak in USA that killed close to 33 people in 2011 to the E-coli 0104-04 outbreak that killed over 20 people in Germany have recommended that food companies consider tracking and improving Food Safety Culture in addition to other risk control measures. 

Many of these, food safety incident and food recalls were preventable if Food Safety Culture was a meaningful focus of food companies and senior managers.
