The article discusses supply chain security in food service. The security of the food supply can be compromised at any of the connecting links, which means operators must get their own houses in order and check up on suppliers to be sure they are doing what they should. The foodservice business is built on a supply chain that begins in the field and extends to processors, manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers and ultimately, the operator.
