The Global Food Safety Culture Series is designed to help you learn about the regional cultures in which your company operates and how to leverage those unique characteristics to improve your food safety outcomes. The series continues to explore five distinct regions: Europe, Australia, Asia, U.S. and Canada, and Latin America. During five separate webinars, these regional cultures will be explored at a macro level by Lone Jespersen, Ph.D., Cultivate, the impact of these regional cultural differences on food safety will be discussed by 3M Food Safety, and a practical case will be illustrated by a food safety professional at a food company operating in the specific region under study.

Welcome to Asia!
Here at our half-way point in the series, Lone Jespersen, Ph.D., Cultivate, will explore this regional subculture of the global food industry by describing its unique characteristics; Angel “Jun” Barnes Jr., 3M Food Safety, will describe how these cultural differences may impact food safety; and Dr. Ena A.
