Food Recall Consulting and Expertise

What is a Food Safety Crisis? It is any unplanned event that triggers a real, or perceived, threat to the safety, health, or environment of consumers, customers or employees.

If a crisis, such as a recall, is not handled well, it will not only impact those who have been involved, but also have a negative impact on a company's reputation-ultimately resulting in lower sales and/or lower stock prices. In some cases, it may put the very survival of a company at risk.

The best time to plan for a Crisis is before it occurs-not when it is occurring. With proper planning, training and testing of the program, a crisis can be managed to minimize the short and long-term negative effects.
