Do you know where every ingredient in your product comes from?  You need to. The FDA created a series of stringent laws in an attempt to reduce the possibility of contamination in our food chain.  The last of these laws, the “Track and Traceability requirement” comes into effect this December. It will have an impact on all areas of the food chain, suppliers, manufacturers, shippers and warehousers will all need to be in compliance.

Xtalk is is pleased to present the Track and Traceability Conference.  At this event you will hear from the Team Leader for this Record Keeping Regulation, he will provide an overview of the Act and its requirements and answer your questions.
