food transportation new rules

Food safety and sanitary requirements are becoming tighter and food companies have to comply with numerous regulations. Recently, the FDA proposed a  new rule to reinforce standards on logistics and supply chain operations regarding food transportation. Shippers, carriers, and receivers with more than  $500,000 in annual sales will be impacted if they carry food for US consumption.

“This proposed rule will help reduce the likelihood of conditions during transportation that can lead to human or animal illness or injury,” said Michael R.  Taylor, the FDA's deputy commissioner for foods and veterinary medicine.

Palm oil: The traceability challenge for food industries

By | Product Information Management | No Comments

sustainable palm oil

Talking about palm oil is very trendy. A few years ago, Greenpeace opened a new debate with the Kit Kat ads and orangutans protection event to find a solution to the palm oil challenge. At that time consumers discovered this new oil revolution.
