In this fast paced world products reach customers in less time and in greater volumes than ever before. To meet rising demands businesses rely on mass production, diverse vendors and suppliers, as well as complex manufacturing processes. Product contamination can occur anywhere in the supply chain and is a prevalent risk for many organizations. Food, drink, cosmetics and other ingestible products are susceptible to accidental or deliberate contamination for political or financial gain. Accidental contamination, malicious product tamper and product extortion can have far reaching implications on the existence of the product and even organsiation. Disgruntled employees, political and social activism and sabotage can all potentially result in malicious contamination. Considerable costs can be incurred in both recalling and replacing the damaged product as well as in rebuilding public confidence. It is imperative to have a comprehensive cover in place to avert such dangerous situations.
