FSMA Solution for Food Safety Compliance

FSMA Solution for Food Safety ComplianceReeferTek USA a national manufacturer of refrigerated vans, has introduced a turnkey solution for businesses to meet the latest FDA requirements. The innovative products from ReeferTek will enable companies to comply with these regulations by integrating third party software tools which monitor and report refrigeration temperatures, GPS locations, dates and times.

A few years ago, the FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) ruled that transporters of refrigerated freight be required to implement procedures for complying with provisions for temperature control, as well as the way this information would be relayed to both shippers and the end user.

“For many products, refrigerated transportation is not an option, it is an absolute necessity” said Michael Leibman, President of ReeferTek USA. “The benefits of refrigerated transportation are centered around safety, cleanliness, compliance and basic supply and demand. With the explosion home delivery and last mile logistics, proper transportation of refrigerated goods with smaller delivery vans is an essential component to the supply chain.”

The FDA recently finalized its food safety rule to prevent food contamination during transportation. The rule requires those involved in transporting human and animal food – shippers, loaders, carriers and receivers – to follow best practices for sanitary transportation, such as properly refrigerating food, adequately cleaning vehicles between loads and properly protecting food during transportation.

“Our seamless liners are ideal for power washing and sanitizing the interior between deliveries” added Leibman. “Moreover, our antimicrobial liners allow customers to protect products from stain and odor causing bacteria, mold and mildew. This results in cleaner and fresher transportation. We combine all of these features and the latest software technology – to deliver refrigeration solutions which meet FDA requirements. Our R&D team is continually testing new materials and options to further enhance our products.”
