Food safety is a very important aspect in the food and beverage industry. Just as it is essential to protect the food system from cross-contamination, it is also necessary to trace a bad sector of contaminated food and remove it from the system/recycle. If the bad product is detected when it is out of factory, it will be necessary to trace the entire production lifecycle of the product to check for root cause of contamination.
Good automation system practices that can help you do these jobs to ensure food safety include:
1. An effective batch processing software with a material traceability module with genealogy. This will ensure complete tracing of the product from raw material to end product. In addition to providing quality assurance for the product, it also enables easy compliance with food regulations.
2. Use various sensors like IP cameras and monitoring systems, access control systems, etc., to provide a tight surveillance on production areas of the plant.
3. Develop a very effective security management system.
