The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), when signed into law in January 2011, created regulatory requirements for preventive controls across the supply chain for human and animal food facilities. This unprecedented law better ensured imported products meet U.S. standards for safety, notes Rae Martin, president, Continuum Partner Consulting, in this podcast with Sandy Almendarez, editor in chief, Natural Products INSIDER. In this conversation, Martin and Almendarez discuss:
- The most common requirement of FSMA that food brands fail to achieve.
- The essential component that brands need to achieve FSMA compliance
- The one thing Martin would change to FSMA if she could.
Martin is speaking at the SupplySide Workshop “FSMA and Import Requirements for Food and Supplement Brands” on Wednesday, Oct. 16, 2019 at 9 a.m. to noon. This session is underwritten by Venable.
