Why do we need the Safefood 360° RISK Assessment Tool?
Safefood 360° RISK uses internal and external data sets that helps food safety managers to quickly underpin their assessments and decisions with scientific data, developing robust food safety and supply chain programs.
RISK pulls hourly updates from EU RASFF and the World Bank for the most up-to-date data you can then visualise in geographical and global heat maps, in addition to the ability to drill down into the source data. By just utilizing their reports, the information needs to be taken one by one, which can be time-consuming for an individual business operator – subscribing to RISK saves your Food Safety Managers time in daily operations.
RISK also includes data from FDA food alerts in its beta version mode. Request a demo for more details from our technical consultants.
How do we use this data?
Safefood 360° RISK enables food businesses to make better food safety, fraud, governance and sustainability decisions. It contains a wide range of tools and features, including:
– Identifying emerging food safety trends globally based on your products, hazards and material sources.
– Assessing risk associated with your suppliers and products using reliable data sets and analytical methods.
