A series of product recall crises in the Australian food industry recently has significantly influenced consumers’ perception of food safety. The underlying concern is whether dwindling consumer confidence will spill over to other Australian food products. Earlier this year, a listeria outbreak linked to rockmelons claimed the lives of 6 people. This incident caused a 90% drop in rockmelon sales across Australia, leaving consumers deeply concerned about the safety of rockmelons. The next product recall crisis could trigger call for increased regulation that regulators would have to respond. Two key concerns stemming from food recalls are loss in sales and loss in brand reputation. This workshop will address any food recall challenges and equip delegates with powerful brand reputation protection strategies.
