Food Safety Made Easy

ConnectFood Product Safety Reviews offers a step-by-step approach to document food processes and ensures compliance quickly and easily. You not only save them time, you simplify the preparation of safe foods and ensure data entry is completely accurate.

ConnectFood is a cost effective solution for farmers, product owners, and co-packers for safety reviews of new food products. A food safety product review is required by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for acidified and low-acid foods (i.e., hot sauces, marinara sauces, pickled products) to ensure processing requirements and safety factors are met and products are safe for consumers. ConnectFood Product Safety Reviews offer a quick and easy, step-by-step approach for the documentation of schedule processes in accordance with 21CFR Part 110. This approach saves time and money in documenting the monitoring and record keeping, simplifies the process for preparation of safe foods, ensures data entry for regulatory compliance is complete and accurate, and manages food process documents for fast retrieval.

How it works

How Farmers, Brand Owners, and Co-Packers enter their products for review by food scientists to create documentation for inspectors and/or retail and supply chain executives

1. Enter Your Food Product

Farmers, Brand Owners, and Co-Packers enter information about their food products for a safety review.

2. Review by Food Scientists

World class process authorities and food scientists review the food product to validate and verify safe production practices.

3. Documentation for Inspectors and Executives

The resulting risk management plans, HACCP plans, and food safety letters can be used during food safety inspections and also used for review of potential retail executives.
