As the global food system has become more complex, food manufacturers are looking for ways to harmonize safety standards. Cargill’s Mike Robach, a Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) board member, tells FoodNavigator-USA about what's driving the industry to support the GFSI in increasing numbers.

Speaking at the Consumer Goods Forum's Global Food Safety Conference in Orlando, Florida, Robach talked about the increasing number of foods being produced in countries where they are not consumed, leading to more food companies recognizing the need for a benchmarking scheme for global food auditing programs.

Robach, who is vice president of corporate food safety and regulatory affairs at Cargill, explains how the GFSI aims to tie together standards from around the world.
