Food and beverage manufacturers have an increasing responsibility to take precautions to ensure that products which enter the supply chain are safe, free from contamination and unlikely to harm end users.

The ‘Due Diligence’ defence requires manufacturers to prove all appropriate precautions were taken to minimise the risk of contamination. However, what’s considered appropriate varies by business size and resources and therefore food production processes should be under constant review.

METTLER TOLEDO’s updated white paper ‘The Principles of Due Diligence for Quality Control and Legal Defence’ outlines a range of practical solutions manufacturers can take to maintain product safety. This includes prevention steps internationally recognised under the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).   

Legal actions taken against food and beverage manufacturers for breaches of food safety regulations pose a serious threat to both brand reputation and consumer confidence.
