Hello, I am looking for someone to write an essay on Implementing Food Safety Programs Using the Kurt Lewin Forces Theory. It needs to be at least 1250 words.
Lewin utilized his field theory in his research on human habits towards food and surrounding changes. Food companies believe in the fact that food move through channels that are governed by forces that either resist or attract changes within the food supply chain. Such channels can be represented in numerous ways that include farms, stores and gardens while resistance and attraction involves aspects such as pricing, family and health amongst other domains (Chernauski-Breen and England, 2012).

In this case, successful implementation of any change depends on full understanding of behaviors that drive or oppose change (Alexander et al., 2011). There are several forces that drive the process of implementation of food safety program within food manufacturing facility. These driving forces operate either individually or corporately as described below.
The first driving force involves customer demands which motivates and makes food companies to consider updating their food safety programs hence keeping them in shape. In most instances food companies are forced by customers to have full safety program in place for them to be assured of customer base (Sara and Baker, 2013). This calls for food companies to set up supplier food safety program for the purposes of meeting customer requirements and protecting their food products. Customers require such food safety programs not only in companies but also within company suppliers. At times, customers move a step further by getting involved in auditing suppliers of a food company vendor. For instance, it is compulsory for some produce growers to have GAP’s program before they can sell products to
