A robust and well managed food chain is essential to the health and well-being of all consumers and is fundamental to social and economic stability.
This makes food safety a critical issue that must be managed effectively throughout the food chain from farm to fork.
The consequences of food-borne illness can be catastrophic not only for the consumer and health services but also for the retailers and other organisations in the supply chain in terms of cost (through prosecution, product recall or opportunity cost) and reputation (through negative publicity).
In addition to food safety, the global food chain has significant impact on the environment, the health and safety of employees, as well as its own unique operational requirements.
NQA has significant expertise in providing support services to the food sector and is ideally placed to assist organisations to achieve best practice.
