How Food Safety Technology Helps Food and Beverage Companies Automate Management of Robust HACCP and HARPC Programs

New Article in Food Quality and Safety Magazine, a Wiley Publication -- Co-authored by Safetychain Software's Barbara Levin and Dan Bernkopf -- Focuses on How Technology Helps Ensure HACCP/HARPC Workflow, Non-conformance/CAPA Management, and How HACCP/HARPC Automation Creates ROI

SAN RAFAEL, CA--(Marketwired - December 18, 2014) - SafetyChain Software, leaders in Food Safety Chain Management Systems that Automate, Streamline & Improve FSQA™ -- is pleased to announce that Food Quality & Safety Magazine, a Wiley publication, has published an article on the benefits of HACCP/HARPC automation, co-authored by SafetyChain's SVP and co-founder, Barbara Levin, and VP Food Safety and Quality Assurance (FSQA) Applications, Dan Bernkopf, in its December/January 2014-2015 issue.

The article, titled "Automation Manages Robust HACCP (and HARPC!) Programs," discusses the various benefits of HACCP/HARPC automation, including:

  • Streamlining and improving common HACCP/HARPC challenges such as monitoring multiple, complex plans across a company's facilities/operations; verifying workflow; and ensuring completion of all tasks associated with SOPs, PRPs, and CCPs, and more
  • Validation of plan elements; ensuring realtime non-conformance information for timely CAPA generation; and creating a central repository of FSQA data across the entire operation for continuous improvement and on-demand HACCP/HARPC audit readiness
  • The importance of cloud technologies for anywhere, anytime HACCP/HARPC and other food safety plan management
  • How do build an ROI-based business case for investments in HACCP/HARPC and other food safety and quality technology investments

Co-author Levin commented, "Management of robust HACCP plans has long been a challenge for over-burdened food safety and quality teams -- and these challenges are sure to increase as industry prepares to migrate HACCP plans to HARPC for FSMA compliance. That's why more and more companies are adopting technology innovations -- such as food safety chain management systems -- or an FSCMS -- to help define program parameters, ensure task are being completed and validated, and to create a central repository of all related documentation for continuous improvement and audit readiness."

"Most important, companies are realizing that these solutions save time and money while creating operational efficiencies that can result in safer food going in to commerce -- and are able to get buy-in for their projects based on ROI. I'd like to personally thank the folks at Food Qualty & Safety Magazine for providing a forum for Dan's and me to share our passion for how technology can improve FSQA while helping companies reduce costs and mitigate risk."
