    As professionals in the food manufacturing sector, we have an obligation to protect consumers from safety breaches that can result in injury or illness. In a competitive environment such as food manufacturing, we can ill afford a product recall that can damage brand reputations and increase costs. Given the fact that the average cost of a recall to a food company is around $10 million and foreign contamination is a leading cause of recalls, manufacturers need to do all they can to find and remove physical contaminants before they pose a hazard.

    With this in mind, how can we prepare a comprehensive strategy that will help combat food safety challenges?

    In this webinar, we will speak to Frost & Sullivan on Technologies Enabling Food Safety, Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection on Developing A Strong Product Inspection Culture, Kerry on Delivering Food Safety In Meat & Plant-Based Meat, and Danfoss on Food Hygiene Systems.

    The full agenda is available below.



    10:00 – 10:05   Introduction by APFI magazine


    10:05 – 10:15   Technologies Enabling Food Safety

    Presented by Dr. Nadiah Ghazalli
    Consultant, Frost & Sullivan

    In light of the pandemic, food safety has become top-of-mind concern for consumers, producers, and regulatory agencies. This talk will cover emerging technologies that can enhance safety across the value chain for various types of F&B products.


    10:15 – 10:30   Developing A Strong Product Inspection Culture

    Presented by Rob Rogers
    Senior Advisor of Food Safety & Regulation, Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection

    Product inspection culture is growing in importance and gaining increased focus from food safety standard owners and regulators. This session looks at how manufacturers and brand owners can develop a good product inspection culture, the operation and business benefits of this and how advanced product inspection technologies, such as metal detection and x-ray inspection, can help.


    10:30 – 10:45   Delivering food safety in meat and plant-based meat

    Presented by Brian Nevin
    Vice President, Product Management, Food Protection & Preservation, Business Development,
    Emma Cahill
    Global Marketing director, Food Protection&Preservation,

    As a global leader in food protection and preservation, Kerry’s focus on increased food safety, quality shelf-life extension, reformulation and clean label helps our customers formulate with their consumers’ needs in mind

    Emma Cahill and Brian Nevin will discuss pathogen reduction to improve food safety, spoilage reduction to improve quality and extend shelf life, and share insights on cost-effective, clean label, or combination preservation solutions.

    With plant-based meats seeing complex spoilage challenges as customers move from frozen to refrigerated products containing consumer-preferred natural ingredients, they talk about how an integrated, data-driven approach can allow customers to successfully extend the shelf life of plant-based meats.


    10:45 – 11:00 The Importance Of Food Hygiene Systems

    Presented by Brad Pound
    Director, APR Food & Beverage Business, Danfoss Drives

    The importance of hygienic food processing continues to remain as a critical element to support the urbanisation across Asia Pacific. Food must be manufactured and distributed to the highest hygiene standards. Almost all processed food will spend some time on conveyors and that conveyor drive equipment must also be designed to support this effort.

    Danfoss developed the first Permanent Magnet conveyor drive system to meet the highest hygiene standards outlined by European and NAM food authorities. Brad will highlight some of those innovative design elements which have led the evolution in food conveyor drive system design.
