FSMA is a First Step Towards Risk-Based, Science-BasedIntegrated Food Safety & Quality Management“In a food safety system, decisions about resource allocation need to be made consistently inorder to maximize benefits and reduce risks while also considering costs.Food safety risk managers must consider a wide variety of concerns in their decision making,including the needs and values of diverse stakeholders, the controllability of various risks, thesize and vulnerabilities of the populations affected, and economic factors. Although thebalancing of diverse risks, benefits and costs is challenging, the lack of a systematic, risk-basedapproach to facilitate decision making can cause problems ranging from a decrease in publictrust to the occurrence of unintended consequences to society, the environment and themarketplace.”National Academy of Sciences. (2010). Enhancing Food Safety: the Role of the Food and Drug Administration.Committee on the Review of the Food and Drug Administration’s Role in Ensuring Safe Food.

1: Food Safety & Qualitycore components, value propositions
“Food quality is the extent to which all theestablished requirements relating to thecharacteristics of a food are met Food safety is the extent to which thoserequirements relating specifically tocharacteristics or properties that have thepotential to be harmful to health or tocause illness or injury are met.”Alli, I. (2003). Food quality assurance: principles and practices. CRC Press.“Classical quality control methods onlyemphasiz[ing] hygienic quality of finalproducts are inadequate to control hazardsoccurring at early stages of the process.Allata, S., Valero, A., & Benhadja, L.

“HACCP areas posing the greatest risk to food safety were veriﬁcation,recordkeeping and correction action. Nonconformities were found inHACCP systems which worked for several years. This raises the questionwhether food producers who implemented HACCP system really guaranteecomplete food safety incorporation of FMEA within the veriﬁcationprocedure of HACCP system may be a convenient tool for better foodsafety assurance.”Trafialek, J., & Kolanowski, W. (2014). Application of Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) for audit of HACCP system. Food Control, 44, 35-44.
3: Importance of Communicationmaintaining transparency and visibility across organizationalboundaries in the supply chain can prevent errors & disasters
“An on-site audit [requires gathering up-to-date information,]communication of results and [sharing] observations amongteam members and with the auditee.”“QMS can reduce the appearance of defective products improve internal communication, increase customer’ssatisfaction, and therefore [market share, increasing]opportunities for expansion in new markets.”Kotsanopoulos, K. V., & Arvanitoyannis, I. S. (2017). The role of auditing, food safety, and food quality standards in the foodindustry: A review. Comprehensive Reviews in Food Science and Food Safety, 16(5), 760-775.
