Repost, with Comments: Number of Trade Regulations to Take Effect in 2014

<p><a href=""><b>Unprecedented Number of Trade Regulations To Take Effect in 2014 </b></a><br>Matt Goodman, Livingston International<br>Prepare your company for an onslaught of new trade regulations, many of which center around food import quality and safety.</p>

Food Safety Modernization Act, Trade Acts, Compliance--how can a food manufacturer keep up with all of the regulations?  The rate of change that is hitting the food and beverage industry--from consolidations, acquisitions, to changing customer tastes, to government oversight--collectively challenge both the large and small processors.  It is one thing to purchase technology, but having the foresight and knowledge to adequately implement, and plan for the future, that's where a company needs assistance.

There are a plethora of firms today that can provide assistance/guidance for direction.  Wonderware, for example, has an Ecosystem Partner Program where over 3,000 trained partners, worldwide, are available for project management, construction, and deployment.

MESA International is another resource. From white papers, through highly technical dissertations on supply chain efficiency, operations management, and an industry-leading MES Selection Guide, they can help the food manufacturer with industry education on compliance solutions.

Lastly, Invensys has a webinar series, filled with stories from our leading customers, that can help you with the compliance and preparation you'll need.  Check out
