A cold chain is a temperature-controlled supply chain. An unbroken cold chain is an uninterrupted series of storage and distribution activities which maintain a given temperature range. It is used to help extend and ensure the shelf life of products such as fresh agricultural produce, seafood, frozen food, and drugs.
Cold chain companies should reevaluate their cold chain best practices. Cold chain best practices and food safety are more important than ever. With the passing of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), cold chain and food safety are getting more scrutiny than ever before. The FSMA has added new requirements that everyone in the food supply chain should be aware of. Cold chain practitioners should update their best practices to make sure they comply with the FSMA.
The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is the biggest regulatory overhaul in the history of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FSMA is paradigm shift that moves the focus from food inspections to preventative measures and process compliance. Learn from expert speaker Joe Lynch, about how the FSMA will impact food producers, distributors, retailers and transportation and logistics companies that transport food.
