SafetyChain for Food Software Solution Ensures GFSI Schemes and Food Safety Plans Are Followed as Required, and that Time / Date Stamped Documents Are Tied to Scheme Codes and Available at the Click of a Mouse
SafetyChain Software, leaders in Food Safety Chain Management Systems that Automate, Streamline & Improve Food Safety and Quality Assurance (FSQA)™, helps food and beverage companies respond on-demand to unannounced audits. In addition to producing all audit documents, SafetyChain’s dedicated platform for food safety and quality assurance (FSQA) also helps companies excel at – and pass – audits by ensuring food safety programs and GFSI schemes are followed per plan.
Barbara Levin, SafetyChain senior vice president and co-founder, explained, “With heightened consumer awareness of food safety issues, along with demands from food service and retail companies for safer food products, unannounced audits are becoming more standard in the food and beverage industry. The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) is leading the way with unannounced audit protocols which are now required by SQF and offered by BRC – other GFSI schemes are expected to also provide for unannounced audits. Food manufacturers and suppliers are also seeing more unannounced audits from their customers. To be audit ready all the time, best-in-class companies are adopting FSQA enabling technologies.”
SafetyChain’s leading Food Safety Chain Management System, SafetyChain for Food, supports unannounced food safety audits in the following ways:
- For GFSI – SafetyChain offers SafetyChain for GFSI – a comprehensive solution that ensures code version control, and allows all food safety documents to be cross-referenced and tied to various scheme code sections – which can then be immediately accessed on-demand during audits
- Create a centralized database of all FSQA records – including COAs, test results, non-conformance alerts, CAPAs, task schedules and completion dates, supplier documents and more – all of which receive an unalterable time/date stamp for audit efficacy – and can be accessed on-demand for regulatory, internal and customer audits
- The ability to automate all safety and quality programs, such as HACCP, HARPC and customer quality requirements – including scheduling, realtime data analysis, alerts to generate CAPAs, supplier compliance and more – helping food and beverage companies not just simply be able to produce audit documents – but to maintain audit readiness all the time and have successful food safety and quality audits
- Store and manage all documents – in a single common electronic document repository
