    FDA's Changing Culture: What it Means for Your Next FDA Inspection, The FDA's culture is rapidly changing in important ways that will affect every packaged-food company. The agency has become more inspection- and enforcement-oriented which means that strategies that worked well in the past may now be obsolete. Several key areas will be outlined to prepare companies for an inspection, such as initial preparation, who needs to be involved from plant and corporate, the importance of developing effective in-plant policies on what to share with inspectors and how to facilitate positive interactions between plant personnel and FDA inspectors.

    Food Defense Fundamentals, The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) will eventually require FDA-regulated processors to verify the effectiveness of their strategies for the prevention of intentional adulteration. USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) made voluntary adoption of food defense plans a performance objective for the processing plants it regulates. Such plans entail an entirely different toolbox to achieve desired objectives. In this workshop, industry experts will cover critical issues and techniques required to minimize opportunities for intentional adulteration.
