Dan Graiff Farms Partners With SafetyChain Software to Automate, Streamline and Improve Its Food Safety and Quality Assurance Programs

Will Leverage SafetyChain's Food Safety Chain Management System for Paperless Document Management, On-Demand Audit Readiness and Real Time Data Collection via SafetyChain Mobile Apps

SAN RAFAEL, CA--(Marketwired - August 26, 2014) - SafetyChain Software -- the leader in real time Food Safety Chain Management Systems (FSCMS) that help food and beverage companies Automate, Streamline & Improve FSQA™ -- is pleased to announce that Dan Graiff Farms, LLC, a grower/processor of triple-washed and ready-to-eat greens and herbs, has selected SafetyChain as its partner for a series of food safety and quality assurance (FSQA) automation initiatives.

Dan Graiff Farms will be using SafetyChain's leading FSCMS to:

  • Collect food safety data "at the source" in real time -- pre-harvest and direct observation inspections, for example -- using SafetyChain Mobile™ applications
  • Eliminate "mountains" of food safety and quality assurance paper documents with electronic document management 
  • Analyze food safety and quality assurance data in real time so that timely Corrective/Preventive Actions (CAPAs) can be put in place before product goes into commerce
  • Create a central repository of food safety and quality assurance (FSQA) data for trending and continuous improvement
  • Leverage the central FSQA repository for on-demand readiness for its PRIMUS GFS and other audits

Dan Graiff Farms selected SafetyChain Software due to its:

  • Comprehensive suite of FSQA functionality
  • Powerful mobile applications
  • Ability to create a central FSQA data repository for continuous improvement and audit readiness
  • Flexible and affordable cloud-based solution
  • Responsiveness of the SafetyChain team
  • Full implementation support

Philip Neary, owner of NPE Produce Consulting LLC, the food safety consultant who worked with the Dan Graiff Farms team on their selection of SafetyChain, commented, "The team at Dan Graiff Farms is highly committed to delivering the safest, highest quality products to its customers and consumers. And like most FSQA teams today, it's easy to get stretched thin between all of the regulatory and third party requirements. Dan and Jamie Graiff had the vision to see how the latest in food safety technology could not only automate and streamline safety and quality -- but also create operational efficiencies that can result in ROI. We're very excited to be working with SafetyChain on these initiatives."

SafetyChain SVP and co-founder, Barbara Levin, added, "The team at Dan Graiff Farms is very forward-thinking when it comes to leveraging the power of technology to build best-in-class programs for their food safety, audit readiness and data collection automation initiatives. We're excited that they chose SafetyChain as their partner to support their goals, and we're very pleased to welcome Dan Graiff Farms to SafetyChain's customer community."
