BUSINESS CONTINUITY FOR FOOD COMPANIES
14 May, AUCKLAND
Facilitator: Steve Hather (RQA Product Risk Institute, Australia)
"Are you prepared for a disaster? Recent natural disasters have made it clear that those companies that are well prepared are much better placed to survive - and even enhance their reputation, when a major event occurs. Earthquakes, regulatory changes in export markets, loss of key suppliers, product recalls can all have a devastating impact on food companies. This crash course will highlight those things you should have in place and provide some simple templates and tools for an effective Business Continuity plan."
