Food Security/Defense 10/15/20 (1 – day): Westwood, NJ

October 15 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm


Guest Speaker: Rod Wheeler

Rod is the Founder and CEO of The Global Food Defense Institute, which serves the food, agricultural, and chemical industry in protecting products against intentional, deliberate acts of tampering and adulteration.

This interactive course examines issues and challenges that might arise at a food facility from intentional tampering, terrorism or sabotage. Participants will learn to develop and implement a food defense program that prepares them to handle intentional contamination, workplace violence, and other crisis situations at their facilities.

The seminar provides a framework for solid food defense planning that can be tailored to individual facilities. Issues addressed relate directly to new customer requirements, the Food Safety Modernization Act, and GFSI benchmarked audit schemes.

  • How to complete a vulnerability assessment and choose appropriate countermeasures to mitigate the risks identified
  • How to devise a crisis management program and create crisis scenarios that can be tested at your facilities
  • How to assess your current employee training program and prepare training sessions for employees on the topic of food defense
