“Challenges of Supply Chain Integrity”

June 17, 2014
Rutgers University
Trayes Hall at Douglas Campus Student Center, 100 George Street
New Brunswick, N.J.

Over the past few years U.S. businesses have increasingly relied on suppliers and sub-suppliers from around the world who delivered on their promises of efficiencies and cost. However, these benefits are now being tempered by a combination of forces: greater regulatory scrutiny in the U.S.; an altered manufacturing landscape overseas; shortages of raw materials; volatility in energy prices; the fluctuating dollar...the list goes on and on. With adulterators getting smarter, what can YOU do to protect your company both domestically and globally? How will the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) impact the supply chain? What do you need to do to comply? What new requirements will be needed from suppliers? What analytical methods can be used for product authentication? This program will address the top challenges facing our companies today and how we can become less vulnerable to this rapidly changing supplier landscape to better manage our supply chain and imports.
