If "food safety" assurance is desired, "compliance" is important but it constitutes a distracting direction to focus my corporate vision. Also, if future-proofing means the preparedness to comply with all future regulations, I find at least two things that are immediately wrong with this suggestion:
2. If the future-proofing is also as focused on “compliance” as this invitation suggests, invested resources, efforts or strategies are bound to be swallowed up in the futility of aiming at, and missing the constantly moving target. The rules are continuously evolving. The actual fortification (the shock-proofing) of my food safety assurance system is bound to be short-changed by any pursuit of compliance to future regulatory rules.
whitepaper that lays out the macro trends in food safety compliance” and shows me how to “future-proof” my food safety organization with a narrow focus on “compliance”.The suggestion is not only self-contradicting, it could lead to wasted resources. What I need is perfecting and improving the proven and relevant practices that are known to work in the production and delivery of safe and quality products to consumers. Compliance with regulations is only an incidental part of the process and should not consume all of my focus or vision to the detriment of actual production systems tracking and fortification.
