HorizonScan Global Food Risk Monitoring System

The globalization of ingredient sourcing has made it more challenging than ever to assure the safety, quality and traceability of your supply chain.

I’ve been a fan of the tool since our trial last year; the ability to set parameters on what you want reports on, and those you do not certainly saves a great deal of time. The ability to access many years of reports is also a very beneficial tool, and can help in making purchasing decisions.”

Jeremy Schneider
Quality Assurance Manager, Supply Chain - Chipotle Mexican Grill

“With the wide range of proteins, ingredients, fruit, breading, etc… that we use across our varied production platforms, we were looking for a way to identify trends and at-risk incidents in a global view. HorizonScan has provided that snapshot for us. I specifically use the service when approving new suppliers, both domestic and imported, to review for current and past issues.”

Deb Taylor
Director, Supply Chain Quality - Advance Pierre Foods

“Supply chain risk control is not only a new FSMA requirement but is an important part of brand protection in today’s food safety environment. HorizonScan is a great resource to better understand where the risks are in your supply chain, and thus better manage those risks.”
