If customers knew that most restaurants’ food safety protocols were based on paper forms that are largely ignored and virtually never reviewed, maybe they would be more discerning in their dining choices. Executives should take heed, lest your organization become the next warning symbol. Restaurant industry leaders need to take food safety seriously. Part of that shift includes utilizing new technologies—ranging from digital “smart checklists” to automated sensors—to transform daily behavior. But first, we must rethink organizational priorities starting at the C-suite. This is the bedrock of fostering an authentic and effective food safety culture. Read more here.

There’s a growing culture of neglect in the food industry, and we need to find effective solutions that are also affordable, attainable, and user-friendly. CEOs are understandably concerned about margin pressures. But failing to prioritize food safety is short-sighted.

Asia is witnessing a growing divergence between “geoeconomics” and “geopolitics,” centered around China. While China offers unparalleled near-term economic opportunities, cumulative decisions taken by thousands of American, Japanese, Taiwanese, and Korean firms are ironically helping to build these countries’ most formidable strategic competitor. Beijing’s growing competitiveness – and assertiveness – are forcing Asian nations to hedge against the risks created by deepening economic networks binding the region together.
