Webinar Summary:

The organic inspector plays a unique role in verifying traceability in the supply chain, especially when organic ingredients or products are sourced from uncertified handling operations. In this one-hour webinar, Silke Fuchshofen will provide valuable on-the-ground perspective about how to assess risk, meaningfully verify operators’ procedures for purchasing and receiving, and gain a clear picture of the entire audit trail. The speaker will provide eye-opening examples of lessons learned through years of experience inspecting complex handling operations, and she will answer questions from the audience.
