Dr Jo Head is a Consultant and Chair of the Food Safety Forum and she recently chaired the Leatherhead Food Safety Day on the 31st May and delivered a presentation on "Joining The Pieces - Towards Food Safety Intelligence” and put together a white paper on “Food Safety Revolution not Evolution.”
Dr Head outlined how smarter tools are currently available that can be potentially adopted within platforms of continuous collective industry improvements and believes any thoughts of food safety as a competitive advantage should be left behind.
She also introduced the idea of Xpert-Ease, Dr Head's brainchild which provides the opportunity to join the available pieces of the jigsaw into such a future-proof platform to better manage food safety and the threats against it.
One of the main parts of her white paper was a look at how Quorn™ engaged her to modernise food safety and quality management systems. Like many organisation's Quorn did have a good process in place to handle requirements but it was paper-based and led to duplication across different sites and a lack of visibility.
MindGenius was used to collate the pieces of the complex jigsaw from around the business and to develop a business system framework and vision to allow effective communication to internal stakeholders.
Dr Head believes MindGenius "was an invaluable tool in converting thoughts into actions at all levels, for identifying, managing and delivering an ambitious improvement challenge. The ability to export maps at the touch of a button to generate Gantt charts was especially valuable."
