LRQA Food Safety Webinars Engage Large Global Audience

Representatives from 32 countries attend Food Safety Issues and Standards Webinar

The second LRQA Food Safety Webinar, "FSSC 22000 Certification" brought some of the world's largest global brands and LRQA together, with LRQA's Global Food Expert, Cor Groenveld, delivering two interactive 90 minute web-based seminars.

Cor led the two sessions, one early in the morning UK time, targeted at existing and potential clients based in Europe and Asia, and then a late morning Houston time edition to provide North and South American clients the opportunity to tune in.

Over 80 delegates registered for the morning session with over 90% of the attendees staying for the entire 90 minute webinar. The agenda featured a 45 minute update on food safety and food supply chain issues, followed by a Q and A session. Then Mr Groenveld led the audience through a 45 minute technical presentation of PAS 220 and FSSC 22000, the new global food safety schemes.

Mr Groenveld was the perfect person for this part, as he is the Chairman of the Board for the Foundation for Food Safety Certification, the owners of the FSSC 22000 scheme. The technical session was an exchange of ideas and audience participation, with over 20 delegate questions throughout the whole webinar. It was an opportunity for all elements of the food supply chain to find out more about food safety issues and have a closer look at ISO 22000, PAS 220 and the new FSSC 22000, the suite of global standards and schemes. Organisations in the UK and Spain were the two markets most heavily represented in the audience.

In the later session, well over 100 delegates were registered, with seven North and South American countries taking part. Again, over 90% of attendees stayed for the whole webinar. Judging from the feedback received during and after the event by both clients and employees, it is safe to say that the LRQA Webinar series will continue. Look for future LRQA webinars on Climate Change, Supply Chain, Management Systems and Food Safety.

Cor Groenveld commented on the success of the LRQA Food Safety webinars,

"At LRQA, technical expertise is at the core of what we offer our clients. Webinars are the perfect venue to interact with organisations and provide relevant information on the issues that are at the top of their agenda. Our Business Assurance approach is designed to help organisations better manage their risks across the food supply chain, both through innovative solutions and through innovative means of providing relevant information to our clients."
