Ten years ago, our agency partnered with Jeff Nelken, M.A., RD (retired) to launch Food Issues Group (FIG), which offers food safety training for restaurants, food defense education, litigation support and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) plan development. Nelken, an experienced professional in all aspects of food safety and inspection, added another dimension to our crisis and health care practices. Today the FIG services restaurants, theme parks, casinos, corporate cafeterias, schools, manufacturers and distributors. From Susan Tellem, partner at TGPR:

During the past 10 years, much has changed in the food safety world.  With the advent of social media, word about recalls and food poisoning can spread quickly and efficiently.  Social media can also trigger a crisis for a food supplier.  News gets out in five minutes where it used to take five days, so crisis management help is critical.  We’ve helped restaurants, food distributors and other entities protect both consumers and their brands.
