Food Sure Safety & Quality Summit 2017


For the seventh-time deciders and industry leaders from all over the world meet at this year’s Food Sure Safety & Quality Summit to talk about the future of food safety and quality assurance in the food and beverage industry. As one of the world’s leading experts, Intact Systems will be there as an official Food Sure Partner.


Integrity Management as a Cornerstone for Safety and Quality

From 22nd till 24th of May actual trends and best practices from the industry will be discussed and examined at the Food Sure 2017 in Amsterdam. Industry leaders such as Nestlé, Mondelez, Kraft Heinz and many more will illustrate with which strategies and tools they take care of security and quality in their companies. This is not just about compliance with several standards, but much more about product integrity and brand integrity as a whole.

Besides that, the summits program promises to offer several interesting speeches and discussions which will cover trending key topics as well as challenges and possible approaches to cope with them.

As official Food Sure Partner, Intact will also participate in discussions and present future oriented software solutions and know-how for efficient integrity and risk management. One of the core areas is the efficient and easy execution of audits and certifications. With the right tools, even very complex multi-standard and multi-site audits are no longer a problem. 


New Ways – Employees as Important Safety Factor

Experience shows that—in spite of all technical innovation—humans are still the greatest safety threat. Studies from Kleboth/Strasser (2013) and Verdú Jover/Lloréns Montes/Fuentes Fuentes (2004) have shown just that. They’ve come to the conclusion that even the strictest regulations and controls do not lead to more safety. Often it is quite the opposite, like when their general reasonableness is put into question.

Only when safety is lived actively within the company and is at the core of the company’s culture and values, safety and quality management can unfold to its fullest.


Keeping Track of Supply Chain Management

The requirements with regards to supply chain management have increased strongly within the last few years. It is getting more and more important to be able to transparently map out products’ supply chains without gaps and identify occurring risks and quality problems as soon as they occur to counter them as straightforward as possible. With the Supply Chain Monitor in Ecert, Intact Systems offers a powerful tool which accesses real-time data and automatically notifies users in case of deviations. This allows you to ensure the integrity of your supply chain and conduct active risk management.
