As every food manufacturer and shipper knows, regulatory compliance is vital to stay operating and to ensure product quality.
According to the US FDA, “The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), the most sweeping reform of our food safety laws in more than 70 years, was signed into law by President Obama on January 4, 2011. It aims to ensure the U.S. food supply is safe by shifting the focus from responding to contamination to preventing it.”
Among other regulatory pressures, FSMA mandates that Food & Beverage manufacturers both monitor and document the entire temperature history of their products.
Another widespread regulation, Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) is a general, industry-adopted form of best practices which many businesses closely adhere to. As with FSMA above, the emphasis is on hazard prevention through measurement and documentation rather than just product recalls. HACCP is effective because it is applicable to each link in the cold chain.
Before sourcing a cold chain solution, be sure to first identify the specific regulations your business is subject to, be it for meat and poultry, milk and dairy, pet food, etc. Once you know your exact requirements, you can decide on the right temperature data logger for you.
