Food Safety Summit 2011
Last week, InfinityQS exhibited at the Food Safety Summit in Washington, DC. This two-day event provided food safety professionals with an opportunity to learn new strategies and discover new solutions for ensuring the safety of their products.
With the recent passage of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), this event was particularly timely. This new law authorizes the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to increase inspections of food facilities, enhance detection of foodborne illness outbreaks, and order recalls of tainted food products. We've worked closely with major food companies like Nestle, PepsiCo and Kraft to develop software tools that enable robust quality control and support the FSMA requirements.
At our booth, we showcased how food companies are using our software for lot genalogy and traceability. Maintaining this information electronically makes it easier for food companies to comply with FSMA. Additionally, we demonstrated how Dynamic Scheduler provides operators with a shop floor checklist. This application is a critical tool for anyone performing HACCP checks because it ensures that data collections occur at the required intervals.
Here are a few photos from the event:

Our next major event will be the CONTROL International Trade Fair in Germany, where we will showcase our real-time quality control capabilities to a primarily European audience.
