The new CPG landscape

Address food safety needs head-on

Consumer packaged goods companies (CPGs) face a challenging food landscape. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that one out of every six people is sickened by a foodborne illness every year. Also, about 50 percent of FDA recalls involve incidents with allergens. Food professionals also have the pressing challenges of complying with FSMA regulations in their efforts to keep consumers safe.

CPGs must deal with even greater sanitation issues and distribution challenges stemming from a multitude of international food safety standards. As a result, U.S. food companies have an even greater need to determine safety, quality and authenticity of products they receive from overseas. These concerns are driving an increased need for technologies, testing and strategies for CPG companies everywhere.

As the above changes are communicated to consumers, their preferences significantly impact the food supply chain – and that also presents more challenges for CPGs. As they increasingly seek fresh, local foods, there are many associated safety implications. After all, unprocessed foods do not have an opportunity for baking, roasting or frying during food production to eliminate the risks of foodborne illnesses.

An industry under scrutiny

Regulation & FSMA readiness – in one package

Food safety / regulations (FSMA, HARPC, etc.) is one of the top factors driving significant change in food manufacturing operations, per Food Engineering Magazine’s 2016 State of Food Manufacturing report.
The FSMA regulations now taking effect have been created to shift the food production industry’s food safety efforts from reactive to proactive. Prevention is key. Especially significant for any FDA-registered facility, the laws give the FDA enforcement powers they’ve never had in the past.

If you’re a major brand, you’re going to feel the backlash if one of your suppliers is found to not be FSMA-compliant. And with FSMA so high on the list of trends affecting food manufacturing, it’s clearly on every company’s mind.

With FoodLogiQ Connect you can:

  • Support your FSMA compliance from a single platform
  • Document and export all safety plans and required recordkeeping in the event of a recall involving the FDA
  • Verify foreign suppliers and FDA-registered facilities with audits directly inside the platform

Meeting quality goals is harder than ever

Quality control on demand

How does your company address quality control right now? Is that data managed in spreadsheets or physical files? If the FDA demands documentation, could you provide it within 24 hours? That’s why an online platform is indispensable – one that makes it easy to export documents at the click of a button.

There are companies that use a standalone, single person database to aggregate supply chain information and react in case of any recalls or issues that may occur.  With information siloed like this, it’s also typical that a single person manages the data with a homegrown solution.  This is a huge single point of failure in an operation – if that person left, few people understand the data and what is going on with it.

With FoodLogiQ Connect you can:

  • Centralize all of your quality control documentation into an always-on platform that reduces manual processes
  • Equip your employees with a mobile app to deliver quality data at their fingertips, when it’s needed most
  • Create automated workflows to save time spent on quality control, without sacrificing accuracy and data integrity
