Supply chain intelligence assesses food supply chain risks
BSI Supply Chain Services and Solutions, Scottsdale, Ariz., released its new food safety and fraud intelligence and assessment management modules, developed to help the food industry take a proactive approach to mitigating potential threats. The new modules allow users to monitor and assess the threat of food contamination, food adulteration, mislabeling, recalls and otherwise deceptive food and beverage products.
BSI's web-based intelligence solution, Supply Chain Risk Exposure Evaluation Network (SCREEN), launched two risk indicators—food safety and food fraud—to provide threat ratings for 200-plus countries along with interactive risk maps and qualitative reports. SCREEN's food module provides insight into food safety and fraud risks as well as global security, corporate social responsibility and business continuity threats and trends that could impact the food supply chain. BSI's SCREEN food module provides real-time updates regarding food-related incidents, such as contamination, food fraud, food safety, forced labor, natural disasters, theft, smuggling and more, to help users monitor and proactively manage potential supply chain exposures.
BSI also released a Supplier Compliance Manager (SCM) food module to help food manufacturers and retailers assess the quality, safety and security of their supply chain and business partners. This web-based, automated assessment management solution allows users to fully manage the assessment process from beginning to end, and provides a single solution to manage self-assessments, on-site audits, corrective actions, communications and more along with a robust dashboard to track program progress year over year. SCM provides off-the-shelf templates based on the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP), Threat Assessment Critical Control Point/Vulnerability Assessment and Critical Control Points (TACCP/VACCP) criteria, as well as other Food Standards Agency (FSA) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) checklists.
