New Year, New Food Law

Food manufacturers face tighter HACCP and food safety requirements

Published: Thursday, January 13, 2011 - 13:33

(InfinityQS: Chantilly, VA) -- With the Jan. 4 signing of the Food Safety Modernization Act, the most significant update in American food safety was passed into law since the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act of 1938. This new law authorizes the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to increase inspections of food facilities, enhance detection of food-borne illness outbreaks, and order recalls of tainted food products.

The law also requires most food companies to write and implement new safety protocols to mitigate potential hazards. In addition, imported food products face increased scrutiny under the law, including denial of entry into the United States under certain circumstances.

As experts in food safety and electronic Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP) management, InfinityQS understands the issues faced by food manufacturers and is well positioned to assist companies to ensure their products are safe while making process efficiency improvements that reduce costs.

InfinityQS worked closely with major food companies like ConAgra, Nestlé, PepsiCo, and others to develop software tools that enable robust quality control and support the requirements of the Food Safety Modernization Act.

“Our clients in the food industry have made safety their top priority and have put the systems in place that are necessary to monitor, track, and control the quality of each food product,” says Michael A. Lyle, president and CEO of InfinityQS. “We’ve worked closely with them to add new features and enhancements to our software that monitor scheduled quality checks, track lot history, and ensure regulatory compliance.”
