NSF International and TraQtion are a platinum sponsor of the National Restaurant Association (NRA)’s Food Safety & Quality Assurance Executive Study Group (ESG). The event -- being held October 9-11, 2019 in Orlando, Florida -- brings together experienced food safety and quality assurance professionals from national restaurant brands and offers restaurant operators the opportunity to learn the latest on FDA insights, food safety regulations, foodborne illness, health inspections and allergens.
TraQtion offers an integrated suite of cloud quality and compliance software solutions, helping the restaurant industry digitally transform its quality assurance operations into a business growth engine. NSF and TraQtion will have booths in the vendor expo.
“There are over 1 million restaurant locations employing 15.3 million foodservice workers in the United States alone1. Quality assurance is shifting from a cost center to a strategic business driver of many companies,” says TraQtion Managing Director Kannappan Manickam. “TraQtion’s goal is to ensure that digital innovation is front and center at this year’s show. We look forward to interacting with the restaurant operator community and showcasing how mobile and cloud technology can help them digitally transform their quality operations from back- to front-office and tap into the massive opportunity for automation within their quality operations.”
“We are pleased to once again to be a platinum sponsor of this event. An inadequate food safety management system (FSMS) is one of the strongest predictors of non-compliance in fast food and full-service restaurants. The 2013-2024 FDA Retail Food Risk Factor Study found that restaurants with a well-developed FSMS had less than half as many risk factors and food safety practices that were out of compliance than restaurants with a non-existent FSMS,” says Paul Medeiros, NSF’s Managing Director of Consulting and Technical Services for North America. “NSF’s consulting and technical services and retail audit services teams are here to be your trusted advisor to help manage brand risks and achieve business goals using our expertise in food safety, quality and technical consulting services to the entire food safety value chain.”
