How To Avoid Recalls Due To Packaging and Labelling Faults

Avoiding Recalls

Did you know: Between 2005 and 2014, the independent statutory agency Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) co-ordinated 586 food recalls.

Of those, one-third (32%) was due to incorrect labelling, including undeclared allergens.

Food recalls are an unnecessary waste, and can be easily reduced to achieve better efficiencies and profitability by establishing robust, reliable and objective quality assurance (QA) processes with the right technologies and processes that are also very cost-effective.

The true cost of a recall extends far beyond your manufacturing plant — to impact your brand reputation with trading partners and consumers, leading to a reduction in sales and, worse still, a loss in brand loyalty.

Undeclared allergens and incorrect labelling are a very real threat to consumers, and manufacturers have a responsibility to protect customers from products that might cause them harm.
