Rapid globalization of food production increased potential likelihood of food contamination Gaps in product safety implementation Additional and more specific laws and regulations Product liability – Brand Protection…..

Pitak Supanantakarn 21 MAIN CHALLENGES IDENTIFIED BY SUPPLIERS No management systems in place at the production unit Limited information of expectations and needs Reduced support of implementation stage from some buyers Short term relation or view Very competitive market Reduction in prices and margin Increase of global production Standards developed in buyer markets for implementation at sourcing markets
Pitak Supanantakarn 22 HOW AND WHAT TO IMPLEMENT BY SUPPLIERS? Management systems programs Systematic and proactive approach, rather than reactive with costly actions Consult your clients, understand their needs Identify best fitting alternative of recognized programs Ensure top management endorsement Develop reasonable, timely and cost-effective action plan Monitor program implementation and efficiency periodically Select qualified and experienced service provider for consultancy or external verification
Pitak Supanantakarn 23 INDEPENDENT VERIFICATION – WHY USE IT? Increasing consumer demand for product differentiation in global markets Buyers are increasingly using Assurance Schemes to verify quality Excellent tool for the operator to: Validate their quality and/or traceability system against international standards To communicate to customers and suppliers the quality standard they have achieved Increases producer’s credibility Verify label claims – Halal, Non-GMO, organic, Kosher, fair trade, etc Certification an increasingly valuable “ticket to trade”
Pitak Supanantakarn 24 CHALLENGE TO THE SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT Customer requirement is constantly changing.. Endless.! Language Culture Local legislation Time and distance Individual interpretation International legislation Lack of resource and support Using quality system in the wrong reason..
