During the COVID-19 pandemic, the FDA suspended many of its inspection activities and experimented with new modes of inspection – leaving many food companies wondering what’s next for food safety in 2021. Meanwhile, FDA’s thinking on the prevention of foodborne illness outbreaks, inspections, using new technologies, and engaging consumers has been changing rapidly. Last year, FDA announced its New Era for Smarter Food Safety Blueprint, including four core elements: 1) Tech enabled traceability, 2) Smarter tools for outbreak response, 3) New business models and retail modernization, and 4) Food safety culture.
Attorney Jeni Lamb Rogers will recap enforcement trends for 2020, reflect on the Blueprint, how it interacts with FSMA, and what changes food companies can expect in their interactions and engagement with the FDA prior to and during facility inspections this year and beyond.
