As part of the Food Safety Modernization Act and the Rule – Mitigation Strategies to Protect Food Against Intentional Adulteration, you may be required to have a Food Defense Plan in place, are you prepared? There are very specific sections that must be included in your plan and the plan should be developed both from a corporate level as well as at each facility. It is important that not only do you develop a Food Defense Plan but that it is reviewed and revised on at least an annual basis. Some key sections that must be included in your plan are Product Recall, Physical Security, IT Security, Emergency Contact Information, and Facility Layout.
As part of the Rule, you will need to conduct assessments and prepare a Mitigation Strategy. For assistance with your program, PRS can assist with the review and/or development of your program and Food Defense Plans.
