How IoT is Changing the Future of Food Safety

Today’s food production is sourced from worldwide ingredients creating greater complexity in food safety and making the task of ensuring the safest, highest quality products are delivered to your customers, extremely challenging.

Every year, a total of approximately 4 million (1 in 8) Canadians are affected by food-borne illness with the leading cause being Norovirus. The Canadian Government has recently improved federal regulations to reduce the risks posed by food-borne illnesses by enhancing controls and testing requirements. This means that Canadian food safety regulations are now more stringent than ever.

How IoT is Changing the Future of Food Safety

New innovations using the Internet of Things (IoT) are helping to address compliance issues, reducing health risks and food spoilage, while also enhancing food safety from agriculture and transportation to retailers and restaurants. IoT is making food safer for everyone by monitoring any work environment or equipment with sensor technology. These sensors gather information throughout the food production chain and automate business intelligence to streamline processes ensuring HACCP requirements are met. Transmitted data can be stored, analyzed, and reported for compliance purposes now and into the future. Using advanced food safety management systems such as ICICLE can drastically help can to ensure compliance across the globe.

By obtaining strategic insights with predictive, proactive online reporting, IoT makes it possible to make real-time business decisions that can dramatically improve food quality and drive down operating costs from farm to fork.
