Today’s food and beverage processing facilities face stricter regulations than ever before, with regulations like the FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act, whose purpose is for food and beverage processors to take a proactive approach to prevent a food recall versus the reactive approach to a food recall. In this April 27 webcast, Baldor Electric's Mark Gmitro will discuss the steps to consider to make a product food safe, changes that are taking place now in food and beverage and what the future holds for the industry. Mark will also provide the audience with an overview of NSF International certifications and zone ratings.
