Quality Assurance Across the Supply Chain

Throughout the last 30 years, global ingredient supply for medicines as well as for foods and food supplements (FS) has dramatically changed from local and regional supply to a global supply chain. As food manufacturers/marketeers are fully responsible for the compliance and safety of their products, they have to ensure the appropriate quality throughout the whole global supply chain. Finally, the product placed in a market as to fully comply with the national or, in case of the EU, regional legislation.

Therefore, a FS manufacturer has to know his product in all details and has to take the appropriate measures to have all relevant documentation on file. This presentation will provide information on how the appropriate FS Quality can be managed by implementation of the right QA strategy.
