Food Safety Management Software
Now, more than ever, all food chain stakeholders are required to demonstrate their commitment to food safety and food quality. Recent food-related events over the past few years have led regulatory bodies like the FDA to examine not only their internal processes but also set forth standards and initiatives to make the food production process safer as well as to ensure product quality and process improvement. The leading methods for demonstrating safety and quality in the food chain are to implement HACCP, ISO 22000 and SQF, BRC, and IFS food safety processes into a Food Safety and Food Quality Software System. HACCP involves identifying hazards within the Food Safety and Food Quality Software System and controlling them through prerequisite programs (PRPs) and/or Critical Control Points (CCPs) in the food production and preparation process. ISO 22000 guides the HACCP process and incorporates it into its standard, and SQF incorporates both HACCP and ISO processes into its certification standard. Both the BRC and IFS standards incorporate HACCP into their requirements.
Food chain stakeholders are faced with many challenges including quality of the products, continuous improvement, compliance to regulatory bodies, and quality that spans the entire enterprise and supply chain. EtQ's Food Safety Management Software helps maintain quality to these initiatives, while providing a flexible workflow platform to adapt to changing business processes, without programming.

In fact, many leading organizations today will only work with GFSI-compliant suppliers. The GFSI-benchmarked food safety schemes—SQF, BRC and IFS for example—coupled with regdlatory oversight are driving organizations to seek methods of enhancing visibility into their quality and safety operations. An automated Food Safety Management System (FSMS) is one of these methods.
The FSMS ensures compliance with food safety i ...
