About the Webinar

Creating a strong food safety culture goes beyond compliance; it’s about cultivating an environment where everyone is proficient in food safety, has access to learning about what’s required specifically for their function and role, and has the courage to raise their hand. Insights from data can be a valuable component of achieving this, providing visibility to progress toward a proficient and courageous workforce and its connection to improved food safety.
