If you have anything in your kitchen–food, tools, pans–you need to know that the safety of it all might be compromised. That’s why there are so many Food safety software developers out there, trying to revolutionize how this industry is managed. So today we’ll take a look at what the future may hold for food safety software–and let you know how YOU can get involved.

Many people are using their smartphones with ease these days, whether it’s ordering food or checking bank balances. And with smartwatches on the rise even more people will be taking advantage of this option too.

But all of these apps and devices depend on the information that should be backed up. You can’t just order food from your phone and not know if it’s safe to consume. That’s why there are millions of dollars invested by companies like Google and Microsoft, and several others, in the development of food safety software.

As I mentioned last week, we’ll be covering exactly what goes into this software, how it operates–and what you can do to get involved in this venture. This article will cover the major players in the industry: FDA, CDC, USDA, and EPIS (Environmental Protection Information Systems).

The main components of food safety software that we’ll be covering–in addition to who is developing it–are the “mapping” of where food comes from, where it goes, how it’s processed or preserved–and who’s doing the processing. We’ll also be talking about the logistics of this process because at the end of the day, moving all these foods around is a huge undertaking. And lastly, we’ll talk about funding sources that are looking to get involved in this burgeoning industry.

If you’re interested in learning more about food safety software and how it’s going to change the way we do things–and who’s leading the way–you’ll want to keep reading.

Overview

Whether you realize it or not, technology is already deeply entrenched in the food safety industry. When implemented properly, technology reduces the risk of contamination and speeds up recalls, as well as helps consumers know if their foods are safe to eat or not. That’s because many consumers aren’t aware of recalls on their food items. Today more than ever we need a simple and secure way to get this information out to people without them having to check the Internet every day. And that’s where food safety software comes into play.

Food safety software can be used by a variety of federal agencies—from the USDA and FDA to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Software is being used by food companies, restaurants, supermarkets, and retailers to help them remember when a recall is issued, track their supplies in real-time, and reduce the amount of food that’s wasted. What’s more, it also helps prevent brands from having to pay fines when they’re found responsible for food contamination or safety issues.

Food safety software gets this information online, where it’s available to all consumers. And because of this app-friendly platform, anyone can now easily check whether their food is safe to eat or not—without having to do research on the Internet. All they have to do is download one of these food safety apps from the app store–and they’re good to go.

Now that you know what food safety software does and how it works, let’s get into who’s developing it–and who’s incorporating it into their businesses. Keep reading.
