Plex Systems, Inc. Launches Series of Webinars Addressing Critical Food Safety Issues

Food and Beverage Industry Focus of Informative Webinars

AUBURN HILLS, MI--(Marketwire - Apr 26, 2011) - Plex Systems, Inc., provider of Plex Online, which features the Food Safety Management System, today announced the launch of a series of instructive webinars specifically addressing issues of concern for the food and beverage industry.

Register for "Food Safety Modernization Act: What it Means to the Food and Beverage Industry" for Tuesday June 7, 2011, 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. EDT.

Former FDA Associate Commissioner of Foods Dr. David William Kennedy Acheson will discuss the recently enacted Food Safety Modernization Act and how it will affect the food industry. In his leadership positions at both USDA-FSIS and FDA, Dr. Acheson played an integral role in driving food safety policy and practices and risk management strategies. Dr. Acheson currently serves as Managing Director, Food and Import Safety Practice, at Leavitt Partners.

With the passage of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, food and beverage processors and packagers face stringent mandates related to food safety and food defense. This Webinar will help processors make sense of new requirements under the Act including hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls, food audits and records access, mandatory recall and enhanced product tracing, as well as a number of new import safety provisions.

This webinar series is designed to educate food and beverage manufacturers on the impact of the latest regulatory mandates and how to achieve best-in-class status around Food Safety Management, which involves real-time supply chain visibility, manufacturing operations management, traceability and risk-based quality control. The first installment of this series will emphasize the latest FDA mandate and how to manage compliance more effectively.

Food and beverage processors may register for the June 7 webinar here.
