Vigilistics Invention Patent : Food Safety Enhancement

By: Thomas Cutler

Vigilistics (www.vigilistics.com), a leader in providing systems for food and dairy processing plants, announced that its pending patent "Method and System for Monitoring Batch Product Manufacturing" has received a Notice of Allowance by the United States Patent Office. Vigilistics tracks food products through multi-step processing, including tracking of cross-contamination of food products that is missed by older technologies. Cross-contamination has been identified as an issue in the recent pet food recalls. "The complete tracking and tracing including cross-contamination is necessary to safeguard the food supply," said Craig Nelson, Founder of Vigilistics.

"There are other tracking and tracing systems that keep track of bulk movements. The Vigilistics solution is the only one that records exactly every production phase directly from the plant floor and assembles transactions that correlate actual production and every possible cross-contamination. The resulting information allows tracking from any lot to every possible source of contamination, and to every possible contaminated final product, all accomplished in less than ten seconds," Craig Nelson concluded.
Vigilistics is located in Mission Viejo California, close to the largest concentration of dairy and food processing plants in the United States. Vigilistics provides software to meet the specific needs of food and dairy processing companies. Vigilistics software assembles correlated transactions of production operations for use in analysis, management information, notifications of problems, and to document compliance. The software is offered with a set of modules for specific objectives. Vigilistics Inc. is a private venture-funded corporation.
