IFST Food Risk Management Systems Working Group Digitisation - turning quality data into quality information

Speaker Panel: Matt Rayment and Bárbara Serra
Host: Andy Kerridge

Digitalisation technologies are one of our most significant industry sectors. The aim of this webinar is to share with you some thought leadership from this sector.

Moving food companies from paper to digitised records seems to be taking an age. Perhaps one of the silver linings of Covid 19 is that people are realising that having digitised records makes working remotely so much easier. Add to this that the digitised data is much easier to manage and turn into useful information.

Organised by Food Risk Management Systems Working Group
