SafetyChain Software and Wenger Partner to Offer Comprehensive Food Safety and Quality Assurance Solutions

Under Reseller Agreement Wenger Will Offer Entire SafetyChain for Food Platform to Current and Planned Wenger Customers

SafetyChain Software, leader in Food Safety Chain Management Systems that Automate, Streamline & Improve Food Safety and Quality Assurance (FSQA)™ for the food and beverage industry, is excited to announce that it has entered into a reseller partnership agreement with Wenger, the market leader in premium extrusion, drying and process control systems for the food, pet food and aquatic feed industries.

Under the agreement, Wenger will offer the entire SafetyChain for Food suite – including stand-alone or integrated modules for FSQA Supplier Compliance, Food Safety Management, Food Quality Management, Regulatory and GFSI Compliance/Audit Readiness and SafetyChain Mobile Apps – to current and planned Wenger customers. The two companies will also deliver pre-built integration points between the SafetyChain and Wenger systems for a seamless experience for Wenger customers – leveraging SafetyChain for Food’s ability to integrate data from production equipment to become part of the entire FSQA process and record.

“We are very excited about entering into this agreement with SafetyChain, furthering our commitment in helping our customers be best-in-class when it comes to food safety and quality,” said Lafe Bailey, Co-CEO of Wenger. “Our customers will benefit by having a back-end solution that leverages data from Wenger process control systems to make that data actionable within the larger SafetyChain suite. Customers will gain additional value by working with two industry leaders to deploy a comprehensive suite of leading FSQA automation solutions to support all of their safety and quality goals,” Bailey added.

“Wenger continues to redefine the extrusion industry standard, not just with their benchmark equipment and services, but also because they provide food safety plans and services to help their customers achieve FSQA excellence. By now offering a full automation suite to execute on food safety and quality initiatives at all points in a company’s supply chain, Wenger will further differentiate itself as a trusted partner to its customers,” commented Barbara Levin, SafetyChain SVP and co-founder. “Additionally, due to its global reputation and reach, we’re also very excited to work with Wenger as we continue to expand our global marketing and distribution outside of North America,” Levin continued.

Wenger will be marketing the full SafetyChain suite, preliminarily named the “Wenger APM Food Safety Chain Management System, powered by SafetyChain.” The partnership became effective on April 22, 2015, and will have a soft launch at Wenger’s exhibits at the 2015 Petfood Forum in Kansas City, MO.
