Continental Logistics is now certified by Iron Apple International for finishing the training requirements for FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act).
“Food safety touches us all—especially our families,” said Matt Clark, director of logistics at Continental Logistics. “Continental Logistics is determined to embrace change, embrace technology, and embrace our vendors and carriers by carrying out safety training such as that provided by Iron Apple. As such, we support our carriers, but will also put those carriers on hold who do not comply with FSMA, which went into effect April of 2017.”
Continental Logistics employees have completed the Iron Apple Food Safety Training Program that consists of a four-part e-learning solution. Online training materials and documentation adhere to FSMA and are suited for anyone involved with transportation of food throughout the United States and Canada (carriers, shippers and brokers).
Liam Thorpe, account manager for Iron Apple, said, “Continental Logistics join other major food carriers in the USA that have been certified by Iron Apple, in terms of being prepared and compliant for the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act. Continental Logistics also is compliant in Canada (CFIA) after completing the training program.”
Iron Apple performs this specific online training, documentation, and policies and procedures for its clients. The training should be the first checkpoint in any company’s journey to being FSMA-compliant.
The Continental Logistics differentiator is specifically centered on ensuring compliance in every aspect of its business to protect the seamless flow of the food supply chain, its clients’ reputations and ultimately profit dollars. In strictly adhering to federal regulations, Continental Logistics assists in managing the total cost of doing business and keeping customer’s business relationships strong, growing and profitable.
