Research- A CULTURE OF FOOD SAFETY A POSITION PAPER FROM THE GLOBAL FOOD SAFETY INITIATIVE (GFSI)

GFSI

This short document is based on the content of the GFSI full position paper “a culture of food safety”. It includes the key definitions and a short description of the dimensions and critical components of food safety culture developed in the full paper. This may herefore be a helpful aide-memoire.

Crucially, the full paper places emphasis on:

1. The essential role of leaders and managers throughout an organisation, from CEO to farm, field and shop floor supervisors, from local ‘Mom and Pop’ grocery stores to large franchise restaurant organisations.

2. Why regular communication, education, metrics, teamwork and personal accountability are vital to advancing a food safety culture.

3. How learned skills including adaptability and hazard awareness move important safe food practices beyond a theoretical conversation to live in “real time.”
