Food and drink firms fear major recalls, because of the resulting cost to their finances and reputations. Both forms of damage can destroy a business. Companies can also face needless expense by mishandling recalls – and even by recalling products unnecessarily, which is why robust critical control and contingency plans are vital. Sponsored by Columbus, this webinar addresses these issues.
