Will FSMA be Crippled by a Lack of Funding?


Everyone finally seems to agree that the Food Safety Modernization Act is critical for the food industry, but now the battle has shifted to who is to pay for it.

The government is proposing that the FDA implement new registration and inspection fees to fund FSMA activities in FY2016. A coalition of nearly 60 food groups is fighting this, arguing that the new fees will hurt food producers and consumers. Let the games begin...
Food Safety Issues Affect Both Value and the Bottom Line    

Food safety issues can quickly tarnish a company's reputation. In addition to costly recalls, overcoming negative public perception about the quality of food products is an expensive endeavor.

Equally important, companies with publicized food safety issues have seen drops in their market valuations. Both KFC and McDonald's have experienced a drop in sales after Asian disclosures of using questionable poultry and meat. Their earnings and stock values dropped accordingly. Once created, negative brand publicity is both difficult and expensive to overcome.

And then there are the armies of attorneys who have concluded that "food safety" is a growth industry. Expensive litigation often follows recalls by food outlets, which in turn ripples through supply chains.
