Food Defense Plans in Action: Mondelez International's Global Food Defense Strategy, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, ON --(Marketwired - March 03, 2016) - FSMA is here and the Intentional Adulteration rule will be in force next year. Get ready by learning about how to best prepare for the final rule by participating in the second of a four part webinar series on food defense sponsored by Tyco Integrated Security.

This second session taking place on Thursday, March 24, 2016 at 1pm EDT (10am PDT), will focus on the critical step of implementing food defense plans, and will feature Carlos Cortez, Regional Security Director at Mondelēz International, as the presenter.

FSMA's upcoming Intentional Adulteration rule will require food & beverage companies to prepare and implement written food defense plans which will include vulnerability assessments, focused mitigation strategies, monitoring, corrective actions, verification, training, and recordkeeping. But how do you go about actually implementing a food defense plan for your company? Mondelēz International, one of the world's largest snack companies, has implemented a global food defense strategy, and you can learn about what it takes to put food defense plans into action.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Gain insight into the journey that Mondelēz International took to develop a global food defense strategy
  • Understand how Mondelēz International organized itself cross-functionally to gain alignment for its key initiatives
  • See the actual tools Mondelēz International uses to implement their food defense plans, globally

KEY DISCUSSION POINTS

1. Gain insight into the journey that Mondelēz International took to develop a global food defense strategy

When you are a large company with manufacturing plants and distribution facilities spread out around the world, how do you launch a new initiative like food defense and get buy-in from key corporate stakeholders as well as at each individual facility?

Food defense plans will soon be required by law. But is regulatory compliance the only rationale for implementing food defense? What other factors come into play in developing and implementing a global food defense strategy?

Gain insight into the journey that this global company took to implement a food defense strategy across the whole enterprise.

2. Understand how Mondelēz International organized itself cross-functionally to gain alignment for its key initiatives

Food defense is focused on preventing intentional adulteration and is typically under the oversight of the security function while food safety, which is focused on unintentional adulteration, is typically managed by food safety and quality. While each function has a distinctly different focus, is that the best way to organize to address these critical issues?

What are some areas where there are opportunities to leverage capabilities across functions? What are some benefits from doing so?

Get an understanding of some key factors you should consider in organizing your company's functions to achieve success in implementing food defense.

3. See the actual tools Mondelēz International uses to implement their food defense plans, globally

The FDA has published the Food Defense Plan Builder tool to help companies build their food defense plans. But that is not the only tool available and every company has unique challenges that need to be addressed to protect against intentional adulteration.

What factors should go into deciding what tool to use and what benefits do you hope to achieve in implementing the food defense plan of your choice?

See samples of the actual tool that Mondelēz International uses and find out what benefits they see from the use of their tool.
