The food and beverage industry has been modernized by technology in recent years, but among the most groundbreaking developments of all is blockchain recall traceability. This powerful form of distributed ledger technology makes it possible for food and beverage companies to digitize the full scope of their program data for enhanced traceability, and ultimately, better results. Here are a few need-to-know facts about the newest breed of solutions for the food industry.
Effective food supplier management is a resource-intensive endeavor for food and beverage companies. Ensuring your suppliers are aligning with the food safety regulations and customer requirements your facility must follow is no easy task. While manufacturers and processors have historically relied on offline systems to oversee vendor management, many are finding that web-based tools can transform their processes to drive efficiency and compliance.

We at SafetyChain are often asked by participants in the food industry how we can help them leverage, make sense of, or progress toward the blockchain. The answer is simple—before any organization can leverage the blockchain, their key records and documents must be digitized.
The supply chain poses inherent risks for the food and beverage industry. While supply chain management has always been a complex endeavor, supplier compliance has become an increasing challenge in light of regulatory changes that have taken place within recent years. To ensure safety, quality, and compliance, food and beverage companies are reexamining their supplier management strategies. This is especially true for companies that fall under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).
For our July FSMA Fridays session, we took the opportunity to invite food and beverage professionals to submit their most pressing FSMA questions, which are answered below by Dr. David Acheson, Founder & CEO of The Acheson Group.
The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) has impacted food and beverage companies in myriad ways. In particular, one aspect of focus has been the ways in which allergens are controlled. If your facility is evaluating readiness for food allergen FSMA compliance, here are a few factors to consider.
Food recall traceability has become a critical area of focus within the industry in recent years. It’s no surprise why: both GFSI standards and FSMA rules (Preventive Controls for Human Food and Foreign Supplier Verification Programs) have put the spotlight on traceability to not only ensure prompt and accurate response in the event of a recall, but also in an attempt to preventively avoid recalls altogether. Here, we take a look at why recall traceability should be a priority for all food and beverage facilities.
Food safety traceability has been gaining a lot of attention recently, and for good reason. It’s more than just a buzzworthy industry phrase, and in fact, making it a priority could help shape a brand’s future success. Here, we explore a few reasons why traceability has become a spotlight issue for the food and beverage industry.
Technology has impacted every industry within recent years, revolutionizing the ways businesses are run. While the food and beverage industry has been a bit slower to adapt to the digital age than others, many processors and manufacturers are catching on to the power of automating their food safety and quality programs with modern solutions. One of the most compelling reasons to automate operations is blockchain food traceability.
