F&B: COMPLIANCE AND REGULATION

According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 600 million people in the world, that’s almost 1 in every 10 people, will fall ill due to contaminated or un-safe food and beverage products. And as a result, governments make food and beverage safety a priority by implementing policies and the regulatory frameworks of effective food safety processes.

So, as a food and beverage company how can you ensure that your facility is meeting all compliance and regulatory requirements? The simple answer is a modern ERP solution, but let’s dig a little deeper…

Compliance and Regulation

While regulatory compliance is generally met with positive outlooks, its an extremely time consuming and expensive pain point for many businesses. But that’s where a modern ERP solution comes into play. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), about 48 million Americas become ill, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die each year from foodborne diseases. As a result, numerous food safety laws have been implemented to better protect public health. One of these laws requires organizations to document safety plans and provide the FDA with access to these records. Additionally, the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) declares mandated inspections for food facilities. These laws provide the FDA with greater management which accomplishes higher rates of compliance with prevention and risk-based food safety standards. It allows for an enhanced response to problems and control when they do happen.

ERP plays a huge role in compliance, because the software enforces workflows and controls that guarantee the proper business procedures are followed in accordance with all of the following:

  • The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI)
  • U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
  • The Safe Quality Food Institute (SQF)
  • Bioterrorism Act
  • Hazard Analysis & Critical Points (HACCP) and other standards and regulations

The cost of managing government regulations can be reduced by automating much of the compliance process resulting in significant reductions in time delays, improved accuracy, and cost reductions by eliminating many manual operations. An ERP system which promotes compliance will also provide solutions for lot traceability and quality control, which are also common concerns within the industry.
