Disruptions like COVID-19 demand extraordinary measures.
NOVATO, Calif. (PRWEB) April 09, 2020
SafetyChain Software, the leading Plant Management Platform for food and beverage manufacturers, announced a strategic agreement with Eurofins Food Assurance to deliver a remote certification solution to customers in North America. This allows food suppliers to cope with new restrictions on travel and social distancing efforts stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Best known as a world leader in food, environment, and pharmaceutical products testing, Eurofins Food Assurance also provides certification and audit services for food safety management systems. New limits to on-site visitors have affected normal operations for certifying GMP, distribution audits, supplements, and HACCP.
“Disruptions like COVID-19 demand extraordinary measures,” says Chuck Russo, Vice President of Eurofins Food Assurance North America. “Making sure food products continue to be certified safe is critical to keeping food on the shelves for all of us to eat. Partnering with SafetyChain is an innovative approach to this disruption, and we’re excited to bring the remote audit certification to our customers.”
SafetyChain’s Plant Management Platform is the only complete enterprise solution for plant compliance, quality, and production. It features robust tools for collaborating with customers including an online portal, real-time certification monitoring, and dashboards, all of which can be managed remotely from any device, on any operating system.
“We’re extremely excited to partner with a known leader like Eurofins Food Assurance,” says Brian Sharp, President of SafetyChain. “We knew the COVID-19 restrictions would impact supplier audits and certification processes, risking food distribution to the public. We’re committed to being a part of the solution to overcome the impact of Coronavirus.”
