Do you want to scale? Food safety is a must.
If you want to expand your products to new markets or distributors, grow your business, and increase your opportunities for expansion, having a robust and compliant food safety plan and practice is critical. From Whole Foods to Krogers, distributors have increased their demands and requests for food safety plans.
Why? Foodborne illness costs the food industry as much as $55 billion a year.(1) Nearly 48 million people get sick, 128,000 people are hospitalized and 3,000 die every year (2) from foodborne illness annually. Thankfully, with a proper food safety protocol in place, you can reduce the risk of foodborne illness significantly.
