Over the last few years, new studies have provided consistent evidence that the quality of fresh produce in grocery stores has become increasingly important to consumers. Even before the consumer arrives in the produce section, they have likely already decided which store to shop at based on noticeable differences in produce quality.
As part of our commitment to assist our customers and the produce industry to advance continuous food safety improvements, iFoodDS has pledged a $100,000 contribution to the Center for Produce Safety (CPS).
Consumer expectations and shopping behaviors will accelerate the pace of change and drive demand for instant traceability from farm to fork. A recent AgDaily article, The Growing Demand for Transparency in the Produce Aisle, speaks to the consumer perspective, and features iFoodDS’s HarvestMark Traceability Solution. Here’s an excerpt:
During the pandemic, the delivery of thousands of cases of food to needy families has been streamlined using technology, extending its useful shelf life and reducing waste. iFoodDS and Woolworths were recognized as a Tech Innovation Award finalist for this work by PMA Australia-New Zealand.
iFoodDS is among the recipients of the Food Logistics’ 17th annual FL100+ award. The FL100+ award recognizes software and technology providers that ensure a safe, efficient and reliable global food and beverage supply chain.
iFoodDS is a co-principal investigator in a Cornell-led project that will develop strategies to minimize COVID-19 transmission among workers in meat, dairy and produce food processing facilities.
When the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently released its “Era of Smarter Food Safety” blueprint, among the more detailed core elements is the “Smarter Tools and Approaches for Prevention and Outbreak Response.”
The award honors an individual, group, or organization for preeminence and outstanding contributions in research that impacts food safety attributes of freezing.
September 29, 2020 has been designated as the first International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste.
