FSMA’s goal is to create new food culture – podcast

The Food Safety Modernization Act’s (FSMA) aim is to change the mindsets of brands, ingredient suppliers, retailers and consumers on how food is produced in the U.S.

The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is designed to change the culture of food safety in the U.S. from a reactionary to a preventative mindset. It’s come with challenges, but the law is helping evolve this thinking in the U.S. as more food and supplement brands are meeting FSMA requirements, according to Bill Bremer, principal, food safety compliance, Kestrel Management. In this podcast, Bremer previews his upcoming SupplySide West presentation on the implementation of the FSMA, the foreign supplier verification program (FSVP) and international rules for the food and beverage sectors. With Sandy Almendarez, editor in chief, INSIDER, Bremer notes:

  • The key aspect of FSMA that’s different from other FDA regulations, which makes compliance difficult for brands.
  • Why following FSMA rules is a good ROI beyond legal compliance.
  • The importance of untangling complex supply chains for food safety and FSMA compliance.

Bremer will be speaking at the SupplySide West Workshop “FSMA and Import Requirements for Food and Supplement Brands” on Wednesday, Oct. 16, 2019 at 9:00 a.m. to noon at SupplySide West in Las Vegas. This session is underwritten by Venable. Visit for more information and to get registered.
