According to a report by the U.S. Public Interest Research Group, the total number of food recalls in the U.S. increased by 10% between 2013 and 2018. In the last year alone, the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service recalled over 10,000 tons of food. Food quality issues have contributed to the roughly 48 million people who get sick, 128,000 who are hospitalized, and 3,000 who die from foodborne diseases each year in the U.S., based on estimated the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
One of the key challenges that food manufacturers face in preventing recalls is how to ensure their suppliers maintain effective quality procedures.
Unfortunately, many importers still rely on a manual process that is limiting their ability yo keep track of supplier data and quality processes.
Finding the right solution.
By investing in a supplier quality management tool, importers will have direct access to critical compliance and quality data, such as materials, testing and sampling records, audit findings, and corrective actions. Additionally, with the right tool, importers will be able to update data in real-time and require their suppliers to do the same. As n added bonus, this level of automation will significantly streamline the previously manual process, giving both importers and suppliers the resources they need to focus on what matters most – the safety and quality of the product!
The PIMM™ Supplier Delivery System provides our customers with a customized quality management solution for inbound deliveries. iPIMM™ SuD is the first software platform that elevates the traditional “temperature logger” to integrated cold chain solution allowing the driver to guarantee a quality delivery.
The PIMM™ Continuous Temp Monitoring (PIMM™ CTM) program is the first monitoring program of its kind that allows distributors to share specific temperature performance data with their customer’s / brand owners without sharing every detail of their operations.
Our system provides instant feedback and alerts to allow distributors to properly manage their air temperatures across their refrigerated fleet. When an excessive temperature violation occurs, the system can project the damage on the underlying products with the use of the PIMM™ PPT simulated product temperature.
