AssurX Food Safety Quality Management Software System (QMS): Enabling Compliance in a Stringent Regulatory Landscape
The food and beverage (F&B) industry is one of the world’s largest marketplaces. Challenges in the sector include always-changing consumer demands, food safety, supply chain efficiency, and increasing regulations. As a result, end-to-end traceability has become a pivotal challenge in the industry.
The FDA and consumers expect F&B companies to be fully transparent and provide fast, accurate and substantive proof that foods products are safe and represented correctly. Therefore, paper-based processes and legacy quality systems are simply outmoded in such a fast-paced market.
The AssurX food safety and quality management system is a robust solution for a rigorous regulatory landscape. AssurX helps manage traceability with QMS software that utilizes integrated workflows and intelligent data to measure, manage and improve quality while accelerating compliance.
AssurX’s enterprise quality management system (EQMS) for the food industry addresses some of the most stringent regulations and quality standards today, including:
Safer and more digital, traceable food system
Standards for Quality Management Systems
Electronic records; electronic signatures
Computer software assurance for automated data processing systems.
which requires implementing a food safety plan using Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) principles
“We use AssurX to log quality incidents related to vendors, co-packers, plants and distributors. We’re also logging issues related to health, safety and environmental incidents at our plants.”
