Risk Assessments

SOFHT Breakfast Club – Join Us!

SOFHT Breakfast Club Coffee 

A risk-based management system for your suppliers is vital these days. It is important for customers to successfully manage the risks associated with their supplier base.
These days, people are far less forgiving of a company that claims ignorance as a defence for not knowing exactly where a product is coming from or what checks have been done on it beforehand.
Implementing a risk based management system can be the solution to this problem. However, implementing such a system can be fraught with challenges.
This is one topic being discussed on 24th March at the Society of Food Hygiene and Technology (SOFHT). Stephen Whyte, Managing Director of QADEX Ltd, will be talking about these challenges, how they might be overcome and why it is worth persevering through these difficulties in order to get your suppliers on a system like QADEX.
The end goal of this Breakfast Club is for customers to not worry about unannounced audits. Stephen will be joined by Andrew Skinner from TQS Food Consulting Limited, and they will each be hosting a 40 minute discussion on their areas of expertise. We would highly recommend this Breakfast Club for anyone who would like to find out more about the ways in which they could improve their supplier risk management.
In 1979, a group of individuals of similar fields decided to create SOFHT. The purpose of this group was to share knowledge and raise awareness of various new developments throughout the food safety industry.
This group brings together people from both ends of the supply chain and every step in between, as well as from training bodies, research organisations and consultancies.
SOFHT hosts regular training events, workshops and opportunities for people to get together and share their knowledge and experience, such as through Breakfast Clubs.
These Breakfast Clubs gather specialists in their field to share their knowledge with a small group of like-minded people in a more intimate, informal setting than a full-day conference.

So, if you’re interested, head to the SOFHT website and book yourself one of only 25 places on 24th March, before they’re gone!
