How Organizations Can Mitigate Supplier Food Safety Threats Using Big Data

For large and fast-growing restaurant chains, retailers, grocers, convenience stores and hospitality businesses, the sourcing and delivery of safe and high-quality food can be complex and risky, and the price of failure can be high. One significant food safety issue can greatly impact the health and safety of consumers and brand reputation. But with the right supply chain technology and data, food safety and quality issues can be prevented.

Many franchisor and quick service restaurant brands still struggle with a lack of systems or system overlap. They struggle with duplicate data and/or gaps in information.

Register for this webinar to learn how big data can be leveraged to improve supplier performance and compliance and used to monitor the consistency and quality of food production. Expert speakers will share how monitoring and mining data, like product complaints, can all lead to improvements in food safety and quality.
