Food Safety Education Remains a Key Focus Area for Supply Chain Alliance

With the many food safety laws, rules and regulations impacting food service distributors, Legacy Foodservice Alliance, the Richmond-based Supply Chain Alliance, continues its program to aid Independent Food Distributors with procedures and compliance. Classes are designed to be small in size to ensure that attendees are given the attention needed for their success in planning their food safety strategies and execution.

“Today, you cannot attend a conference, show, or trade event where the topic of food safety is not included” said Steve Push, CEO. “And the impact on the Independent Food Service Distributor is huge – costs, manpower, logistics, and the list goes on.”

Since its founding in 2009, Legacy has focused on providing value and contributing to the good health and well-being of Independent Foodservice Distributors.  Deb Winter, Legacy’s Executive Vice President added, “We are much more than a price/product resource for our Members. Regulations like FSMA are complicated. We want to help our Members navigate complex, and at times confusing regulations, and create procedures that are in compliance with the new requirements”

Classes began in January 2017 and have expanded to include regional Member meetings.  A recent meeting was held in the Bronx, NY.  Taking the education close to the recipients, helps control travel costs for Members, and reduces time away from their companies and operations.
