Food business management app.
Orders - Quality - Production - Sales - Recalls & Audits
Accurate food inventory management delivers reduced waste and increased employee productivity. Manage FIFO, improve stock-take accuracy, scan harvester data, and keep a watchful eye on your food inventory... Easy food stock-takes identify shrinkage and help reduce food waste from ageing. Track food inventory over multiple sites and warehouses (state wide, country wide, world wide).
Maintain strict food traceability and high food safety standards always. Perform recalls based on lot/batch, pack date, invoice #, inventory #, pallet #, delivery date, purchase order #, or perform a recall on your own user defined data allowing extreme flexibility. Perform instant recalls both up and down the supply chain. Makes audits easy and instant.
Consistent and accurate quality control ensures high customer satisfaction and adherence to industry, de-facto, and in-house quality control standards... Track supplier quality performance, customer complaints, create QC tests for any part of the fresh produce & food manufacturing process.
Producepak food manufacturing app is a simple to use solution for buying, and selling food inventory, fresh produce, seafood, meats, and flowers. The traceability built into Producepak provides instant recalls, accurate food traceability, and easy to produce audits, and mock audits. Producepak provides tools to pack food, fresh produce, flowers, and hops. You can use Producepak for food manufacturing, configure the bill of materials for each food product line you manufacture, and manage the food manufacturing process by projecting required raw ingredients requirements and scheduling batches and purchase orders for raw food manufacturing processes. Accurate fresh produce inventory management reduces waste through better FIFO stock rotation, stock-takes, and inventory alerts.
Improve dispatch accuracy
Section 204 of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requires the FDA to designate foods for which additional recordkeeping requirements are appropriate and necessary to protect public health, and to establish those recordkeeping requirements. The additional recordkeeping requirements that the FDA proposes to establish are outlined in the Requirements for Additional Traceability Records for Certain Foods (Food Traceability) proposed rule and are intended to make it easier to rapidly and effectively track the movement of a food to prevent or mitigate a foodborne illness outbreak.
The Food Traceability List (FTL) identifies the foods for which the additional traceability records described in the proposed rule would be required. As noted in the proposed rule, the additional recordkeeping requirements would apply not only to foods specifically listed on the FTL, but also to foods that contain foods on the list as ingredients.
To determine which foods should be included on the FTL, the FDA developed a risk-ranking model for food tracing (“the Model”) based on the factors that Congress identified in Section 204 of FSMA. The Model scores commodity-hazard pairs (e.g., Shiga toxin-producing E.coli O157 (STEC O157) in Leafy Greens) according to data and information relevant to seven criteria described in the report Methodological Approach to developing a Risk-Ranking Model for Food Tracing FSMA Section 204:
Frequency of outbreaks and occurrences of illnesses
Severity of illnesses
Likelihood of contamination
The potential for pathogen growth, with consideration of shelf life
Manufacturing process contamination probability and industry-wide intervention
Consumption rate and amount consumed
Cost of illness
Pass audits with ease
Producepak food manufacturing app can project required inventory (and shortages), schedule orders to be packed in batches , automatic alerts to production line managers, inventory teams telling them which inventory needs to be moved to which production line; guarantees the correct product and quantity is packed on time. Shipping teams are guided through the dispatch process from picking using a phone or tablet (optional bar-code scanning), automatic picking, thru bill of lading, invoice, and automatic shipping notifications for customers, transport, and sales teams. Automatic generation of fresh produce labels, bill of lading, invoice, picking documents and more; reduces administrative burden. Easy audit & recall systems reduces compliance costs.

Easy and accurate traceability
Development of the Food Traceability List
In February 2014 the FDA issued a Federal Register notice to solicit comments on our draft approach for developing a list of high risk foods. Taking into consideration the comments and other information submitted, we developed a draft risk-ranking model and collected data to populate the model for chemical and microbiological hazards associated with specific foods, with technical assistance from external expert panels. Two separate peer-review panels of independent external experts reviewed the draft model and the types of data used to generate risk scores with the model, respectively. We then refined the model and updated the data, taking into consideration comments from the peer reviews.
The Model was developed in conjunction with an FDA Project Advisory Group (PAG) consisting of members from the FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Through contracts the FDA also consulted with external subject matter experts.
Based on data in the Model, we tentatively identified foods for inclusion on the FTL. The list was announced with the Food Traceability Proposed Rule. When the FDA issues a final rule, we will also publish the FTL.
The FDA has developed a tool designed to allow users to explore the results of the Risk-Ranking Model for Food Tracing used in the development of the Food Traceability List. In the tool users can learn more about the methods and criteria used to score commodity-hazard pairs, and the results of that scoring which was used to determine which foods to include on the FTL. Users can access the tool or download the results below. (Note: For best results, view the tool in Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Microsoft Edge.)

The proposed rule sets forth a process for the FDA to update the FTL if the agency concludes that updates are appropriate. That process would involve the FDA publishing a notice in the Federal Register stating any proposed changes to the list and the reasons for the changes and requesting information and views on the proposal. After considering any information or views submitted, the FDA would publish a second notice in the Federal Register, stating whether any changes are being made, and the reason for the decision. Any additions to the list would become effective one year after the date of the second Federal Register notice, unless otherwise stated.
