Lansing, Mich.-based Neogen Corp. made its Neogen analytics environmental monitoring program (EMP) available to qualified food and beverage manufacturers for a full year at no cost. Neogen said it is helping companies reduce risk by increasing access and visibility to food safety testing results. The Neogen analytics EMP, powered by Corvium, enables remote monitoring of multiple processing plant sites, centralizes environmental testing data, automates reporting for compliance and conformance, and improves food safety and quality for food companies and consumers.
According to Neogen, customer needs during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as demands for greater transparency in food safety and initiatives such as the FDA’s Blueprint for a New Era of Smarter Food Safety, point toward increasing expectations, rules and eventual mandates requiring food and beverage companies to implement data-driven environmental monitoring programs.
“COVID-19 has accelerated the food industry’s movement toward its goal of automating and centralizing data collection for immediate visibility and response,” said John Adent, president and CEO of Neogen. “Disruption of the industry over the last 12 months has made it even more imperative to move away from manual safety and quality monitoring and adopt intelligent platforms that offer visibility into all of a company’s facilities, whether around the block or around the globe.”
Neogen said it will waive the Neogen analytics EMP workflow automation module licensing fee for a period of one year, removing the upfront financial uncertainty associated with adopting new technology such as automating EMP functions. During this time, Neogen will provide full-service support of the platform to help food safety and quality assurance teams maximize the value of the platform for their businesses.
