The Food Logistics FL100+ Recognizes Leading Software and Technology Providers in the Food Industry
SafetyChain Software, leaders in Food Safety Chain Management Systems that Automate, Streamline & Improve FSQA™, has been awarded a coveted spot on the Food Logistics Top 100 list. Food Logistics, the only publication dedicated exclusively to the global food and beverage supply chain, announced the eleventh annual FL100+ list this week.
For more than a decade, the editors of Food Logistics have profiled software and technology providers that hold influential roles in the global food and beverage supply chain. Their products benefit the industry in multiple ways, from reducing food waste and extending shelf life, to facilitating safe and sanitary transportation of product while assuring regulatory compliance.
“The impact of software and technology on the global food supply chain is truly profound,” emphasizes Lara L. Sowinski, Editor-in-Chief at Food Logistics. “Software solution providers, equipment manufacturers and numerous technology innovations are supporting growth in our industry while concurrently lowering operating costs, improving productivity and enhancing visibility from farm to fork.” Indeed, the robust activity in the software and technology sector relative to the global food and beverage supply chain prompted Food Logistics to expand the list this year and rename it as the FL100+. “The FL100+ allows us to accommodate and showcase the growing number of companies active in this space,” added Sowinski. “Equally important, our readers benefit from the goal of the FL100+, which is to ultimately serve as a resource guide for our audience.” Companies who earned a spot on the FL100+ list are featured in the November/December 2014 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at www.foodlogistics.com.
Walter Smith, SafetyChain President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “SafetyChain is proud to be selected as one of the companies that holds an influential role in the global food and beverage technology industry. By introducing the concept of Food Safety Chain Management to the industry – designed to manage food safety and quality assurance (FSQA) along a company’s entire supply chain – we’ve provided food and beverage companies with a single, dedicated platform to automate, streamline and improve all major components of FSQA. We’re seeing rapidly growing adoption of our Food Safety Chain Management solutions and are very pleased to be recognized by our inclusion on the FL100+ list.”
SafetyChain offers solutions for food industry supplier compliance, FSQA document management, HACCP/HARPC management, customer quality specification management, GFSI and regulatory compliance – including FSMA, FSQA audit management/readiness and mobile FSQA applications.
Barbara Levin, SafetyChain Co-Founder and SVP, states, “At SafetyChain, we believe that several key differentiators contributed to being included on the FL100+ list. These include our focus on prevention vs. reaction to food non-conformances; our hard-dollar Return on Investment that most customers realize within one year of implementation; the fact that we provide a broad range of FSQA functionality in a single, cloud-based solution; and our ability to create actionable FSQA data for audit readiness and continuous improvement – to name just a few.” Levin concluded, “We’d like to thank Food Logistics for including us on this prestigious list. Investments made in food safety and quality technologies are really investments in the protection of a company’s market value and brand. The expansion of the list this year demonstrates the growing adoption of technology in the food and beverage industry and we appreciate Food Logistics’ efforts in educating the industry about emerging technology innovations.”
