Food Safety
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 48 million people get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die from foodborne diseases each year nationwide.

Illnesses like this are easily preventable. Proper use of preventive controls during food manufacturing and careful oversight can lead to fewer outbreaks and a healthier society.

Relevance to Your Business

Diligence in adopting preventative safety measures can impact your company on multiple levels. Beyond the social responsibility aspect of increasing preventative safety measures, manufacturers will benefit by elevating the standard of their product. By safeguarding against potential outbreaks, manufacturers are protecting against the negative perception that accompanies them. Lowering the risk of a product recall makes good business sense and helps maintain a company’s reputation with customers.
