Training is the Ingredient that Binds Compliance & Business Goals Together
The food and beverage industry employ millions of people worldwide but with a global population expected to grow to almost 10 billion by 2050—that’s a lot of mouths to feed— and there is a lot of pressure to get products to market safer, faster and cheaper.
But, in trying to do all things at once compliance can go astray.
Regulators have taken notice. In fact, in the last few years, they have issued multiple large-scale recalls,
- Millions of pounds of raw beef recalled due to an outbreak of salmonella
- A recall of romaine lettuce due to an E. coli outbreak that was linked to at least 193 illnesses and five deaths
- 450,000 pounds of frozen chicken was recalled for potentially containing fragments of metal
Staying in compliance is a matter of life and death. In addition to the harm caused to consumers, a recall can be detrimental to a brand’s reputation and bottom-line. According to a PwC report, hundreds of companies have recalled products over the past five years, and the cost of these recalls ranged from $10 million to $30 million each.

Employee Retention Issues
The food & beverage industry is notorious for high turnover as well, where it’s a passion for some and a temporary gig to make ends meet for others.
High production quotas, tight timelines, and maintaining consistent behavior across all lines, shifts, and locations is challenging when there are new employees coming in and out. Add federal regulations and compliance rules to the list, and training employees well enough to routinely apply correct behavior on the floor becomes a bigger challenge.
Onboarding with ShareKnowledge keeps everything moving forward smoothly, getting new employees up-to-speed and productive quickly and keeps them engaged with ongoing education.
