THe FDA announced a New Era of Smarter, Safer Food Safety last fall to move beyond FSMA, the landmark new U.S. food safety law and address the marketplace dynamics that were transforming the food, retail and food-service sectors. This webinar will focus on the Agency’s much-heralded program and what it means for the AIM community and the customers they serve. Our speaker, Karil Kochenderfer of LINKAGES, spoke at the hearing and will speak at this webinar about the data-driven, tech-enabled and traceable food system that FDA envisions to create with this new program and regulation.
