Key Technology Introduces FoodSafetyPRO

March 6, 2012

Key Technology introduces FoodSafetyPRO for food processors looking to improve their recordkeeping in accordance with the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), Safe Quality Food (SQF) certification, and/or Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) certification. Available for new and installed G6 optical sorters, Manta, Optyx, and Tegra, as well as G6 ADR Automatic Defect Removal Systems, FoodSafetyPRO improves processes to enhance food safety and profitability.

FoodSafetyPRO is a multidimensional program that combines four elements: a comprehensive system audit, RemoteMD Premium real-time equipment monitoring, unlimited online equipment training for one year, and online HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) training for five HACCP operators and one HACCP manager.

The comprehensive system audit certifies the sorter or ADR meets OEM specifications or provides a list of issues to resolve. The certification provides valuable documentation that the sorter or ADR meets OEM criteria.

RemoteMD Premium, Key’s top-of-the-line proactive real-time data collection and reporting tool, remotely monitors the sorter or ADR, looks for issues or changes to settings that may require corrective action, and alerts the customer if problems are detected. A secure two-way remote session between the sorter and a Key service technician can be initiated, which reduces in-plant service calls and speeds resolution time. RemoteMD Premium tracks and records changes to the software including changes to the application settings from the user interface. It also reports the history of alarms and collects and reports data on product metrics.

Key’s online training program offers up to 60 self-paced training modules that cover the hardware, software, and user interface of the sorter or ADR as well as Iso-Flo conveyors. Online HACCP training covers many of the preventative food safety principles of the FSMA as well as SQF and GFSI certifications, exploring the concepts as well as the actions that may be needed to implement an effective HACCP plan.

These online training programs improve the knowledgeability of personnel to better operate equipment at peak performance and follow HACCP guidelines while reducing training costs. They also record the successful completion of courses to document proof of compliance with industry regulations and company policies.
