Heartland Food Safety Solutions

Food Safety

Heartland’s team of experts provides solutions to trace food products through all stages of production, processing, and distribution. 

Food Safety is Critical to Consumer Confidence

To protect consumers and comply with legal requirements, food manufacturers must invest in comprehensive traceability systems to ensure food safety.

The FDA requires food producers to follow the movement of products and ingredients through all steps of their supply chain, both backward and forward. Manufacturers must document and link the production, processing, and distribution chain of food products and ingredients.

Tracing solutions enable faster removal of contaminated food products from the marketplace, reducing the risk of illnesses.

Frequently Asked Questions

Food safety is the precautions taken in food handling, production, processing, distribution, preparation, and storage to ensure food does not spoil or become contaminated.

What is temperature control in food safety?

Safety standards specify the temperatures at which different foods must be stored, transported, displayed, and prepared. Food temperature control is the cooling, heating, and monitoring of temperatures through production, processing, and distribution.

Why is food safety important?

Food safety and hygiene are vital to ensure food is safe for consumption. Protection also includes methods to trace food forward and backward through the supply chain, which helps in isolating food spoilage and contamination. Food tracing provides a foundation for taking action should spoilage and contamination occur.

Which agency regulates food safety and labeling?

In the United States, as many as 15 different federal agencies are responsible for food safety.
