Asda's learnings from the Horsemeat crisis

At the Anaphylaxis Conference last week there was a great presentation from Susan Mallin of Asda.
With reference to the horsemeat crisis there were a number of outcomes.
First, is a big increased focus on traceability and transparency down the entire food supply chain
Second, it was a wake up call to know what’s happening down the supply chain
Third, do Asda really know where their ingredients come from
Yikes, I suspect that there is going to be a mountain of extra work coming the way of Asda suppliers.
Supplier risk assessments, supply chain risk management & supply chain compliance is going to get a level of focus unheard of in recent years.
