Regulators, Practitioners and Entrepreneur sharing their views in Food Safety Controls in Hong Kong

No food manufacturer will disagree that food safety is a good idea. Above and beyond the obvious – it’s not in your best interests to harm or alienate customers – you care about food safety because it’s good business. The bad publicity, damage to the brand, loss of sales, and expense of a recall can be devastating. In 2012, by the time the lid blew off what was going on inside XL Foods’ Lakeside Packers meat plant, with an outbreak of 18 cases of E. coli poisoning in Canada, millions of kilograms of meat have been discarded in dumps and more than 1,500 beef products have been recalled from across Canada, the U.S. and as far away as Hong Kong.

According to a recent study, 60% of today's consumers are concerned about the safety of the foods they eat. Less than 20% trust food companies to produce and sell safe foods. Governments are responding to the problem by enacting new laws. These issues are of critical importance to businesses in every part of the food supply chain – from farmers and food producers to distributors, food service companies, product manufacturers and retailers. So when will you start to, and how can you help safety to get as much attention as, say, sales growth or cost control?

Topics that will be addressed include:

  • food safety controls in Hong Kong
  • recent updates in food safety regulations
  • key to success in food industry
  • common market practices

This seminar will be hosted by the Principal of Deloitte ERS, Charles Andrew Ellis, and will feature the following presenters:
