One of the three most critical food safety issues facing the food industry today is supply chain failures. With the U.S. initiated tariff wars activated, many types of food shipments are being and are likely to be impacted.
Supply chain failures can impact many aspects of a businesses functioning. Both incoming products and ingredients and outgoing final delays or failures can cause ripples throughout the supply chain that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to companies and their clients.
As the supply chain continues to become more and more complex, poor planning and the lack of defense systems against supply chain failures can cause losses in reputation, poor quality, failing food safety protection, substandard product delivery, share price decline, product recalls and many other problems.
