My colleagues Brian Augustine and Phil Calabrese recently authored an informative piece on a new FDA rule which impacts stakeholders in the food, transportation and hospitality industries. As many in the agribusiness will find this of interest, I wanted to take a moment to share the article with you.
From “FDA New Food Safety Rule Spans Stakeholders From Farm to Fork:”
“The rule imposes a broad array of new regulatory requirements that apply to shippers, receivers, loaders, and carriers by motor vehicle and rail engaged in the transportation of food, whether or not the food is offered for or enters interstate commerce. The core provisions impose new requirements relating to vehicles and equipment, formalized quality assurance operations, required training programs for employees and a host of new record-keeping and reporting requirements.”
