The International Food Additives Council (IFAC) is a global association representing manufacturers and end-users of food ingredients, including food additives and GRAS substances. IFAC supports harmonized standards and specifications for food additives worldwide. The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) shifted the focus of food safety in the U.S. from reactive to proactive. A key component of preventive controls is the establishment and implementation of good manufacturing practices (GMPs). During this webcast, IFAC will illustrate some of the key similarities and details of food additive versus finished food manufacturing, noting why GMPs may be different in many cases. IFAC will then demonstrate how the IFAC GMP Guide may be applied in food additive facilities.
