Guiding a company through the development of an assessment, followed by the design and application of an audit upon process implementation is critical to the success of your cold chain. Assuring optimal product quality and minimal waste is more environmentally friendly and economical than increasing production to compensate for losses. This program is relevant to companies of all sizes as cold chain practices and standards are evolving into a regulatory tool and a supplier and retailer specific requirement.
This free, one-hour webinar will discuss the uses of cold chain assessments and audits as essential parts of your cold chain management process. We will discuss the differences between assessments and audits and how and when they should be deployed. We will highlight how a properly designed assessment can give you the information needed to take your cold chain to the next level. We also discuss how a cold chain audit will validate that controls and processes are working as required.
