Why do we need Safefood 360° RISK assessment tool?

Safefood 360° RISK uses both internal and external data sets which help the food safety manager 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 visualize in geographical and global heat maps, in addition to the ability to drill down into the source data. The data needs to be taken in 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.

How do we use this data?

Safefood 360° RISK enables food businesses to achieve better decision making in food safety, fraud, governance and sustainability. It contains a wide range of tools and features including:

– Identification of emerging food safety trends globally based on your own products, hazards and material sources.
– Risk assessment of your suppliers and products using reliable data sets and analytical methods – out of the box.
– Rapid risk profiling of your products, materials, ingredients and suppliers against food safety and governance indicator data.
