Saint Cloud, MN, October 20, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Dr. David Acheson, Managing Director of Food and Import Safety of Leavitt Partners gave industry keynote presentation at the 2011 Client Connect annual user conference hosted by ProcessPro, developers of ProcessPro® Premier ERP software. Dr. Acheson is a world renowned expert in food safety and the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). He presented the highlights of the current regulatory landscape of the food manufacturing industry.
Over the past two years, the number of food borne illnesses, product recalls, and FDA warning letters issued have been on the rise in significant numbers. The FSMA was signed into law on January 4, 2011 with a comprehensive overhaul of the current food safety system. Tighter controls are now in place for importers, manufacturers, farmers, transporters, and many others along the food supply chain.
“We’ve been affected by supplier recalls,” says Michelle Primrose of Primrose Candy and user of ProcessPro® software. “Having a better understanding of the new laws of FSMA gives us more confidence that food processors will be held accountable for keeping their food safe.”
ProcessPro Client Connect is the annual software user conference, providing clients with the latest in product, technology, and industry information.
“Our goal with this conference is to provide our clients with the perfect combination of product training and relevant industry knowledge,” said Rebecca Kempenich, ProcessPro Marketing Manager. “As a former FDA employee with food safety experience, Dr. Acheson provided the level of expert counsel our clients most wanted.”
