The GDST and the “New Normal” for Seafood Traceability
The game-changing traceability standards issued in 2020 by the Global Dialogue on Seafood Traceability (GDST) are rapidly gaining industry adherence and adoption around the world. At the same time, the relevance of GDST to compliance with emerging laws and regulations (including FSMA Sec. 204) is becoming increasingly clear. As the new standards continue to gain momentum, the GDST itself is also gaining strength as a major B2B platform to support the standards and grow the industry’s voice on issues of seafood traceability. Under the direction of a newly hired Executive Director with almost 30 years of seafood industry experience (Mr. Gregory Brown), the GDST is solidifying its independence and its organizational structure. This panel will mark the first public presentation of the new ED and will include an update on GDST progress as well as important announcements about new GDST services and activities.
- Participants learn about key success stories of GDST implementation across various types of companies and supply chains.
- Participants learn about how the implementation of the standards can support their businesses with important areas of work like legality and food safety.
- Participants learn about the next phase of work for the GDST and how they can get involved to influence the future of these leading standards.
