Speaker: Tatiana Miranda
Topic: Supplier Management Through Active Programs

This presentation will list the different programs successfully implemented to manage and reduce inherent suppliers risk. It will show how one or all of these programs can be used to identify, monitor and mitigate risk associated with vendors. The Food Safety and Modernization Act or `FSMA` was signed into law by President Obama on January 4th, 2011 and published in the Federal Register a few days later, on January 16th of the same year. As of today, the proposed rules are published and with a deadline getting closer. Industry's biggest challenge has been on creating systems that will be more preventative of contamination to occur, instead of being reactive-as they have been all these past years-along the whole supply chain. Improving capacity to prevent, detect and respond to food safety problems as well as improving the safety of imported foods are some of the main areas of FSMA.
