MORRISVILLE, N.C., Jan. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Technology & Software, provider of on-demand management solutions for food safety compliance, today launched alert®, a breakthrough software solution that brings automation, cost control and enforcement to the food safety compliance process. alert gives food companies the power to ship safe products faster and consistently prevent unsafe foods from reaching the marketplace.
alert's release is the answer to currently unmet needs of the food industry, especially in light of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) bill signed this month by President Obama. There is a fundamental shift in the FDA's approach to food safety – from reacting to and managing food recalls to preventing them from happening. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that one out of every six Americans (48 million people) gets sick and more than 3,000 people die from foodborne illnesses each year. These illnesses are preventable if proper food safety compliance processes are enforced.
As the food supply system has expanded globally to include foods from local, domestic and international sources, food safety compliance has become more complex. Manual and outdated safety compliance methods cannot be relied upon to deliver today's safety mandate.
"The importance of prevention is paramount in the food industry. 99.9% safe is no longer acceptable," said Bill Pappas, chief executive officer for Delta Technology & Software. "With alert, businesses can act instead of react, stopping recalls before they happen. Safety issues are resolved quickly and early – long before products reach the store shelves or the homes of consumers."
The alert solution automates and enforces the safety compliance process – inbound, internally and outbound. This new level of control automates the safety testing decision for every shipment. Unlike solutions that simply manage, share or track data entry, alert also integrates with internal, supplier, lab and customer systems to ensure process consistency and reduce the number of manual touchpoints. The result is tighter safety control and greater efficiency. For more information about alert, please visit www.alertfoodsafety.com.
