A cloud-first approach to food safety compliance

FDA 204 compliance

“The FDA final rule on Requirements for Additional Traceability Records for Certain Foods (Food Traceability Final Rule) establishes traceability recordkeeping requirements, beyond those in existing regulations, for persons who manufacture, process, pack, or hold foods included on the Food Traceability List (FTL). The final rule is a key component of the FDA’s New Era of Smarter Food Safety Blueprint and implements Section 204(d) of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). The new requirements identified in the final rule will allow for faster identification and rapid removal of potentially contaminated food from the market, resulting in fewer foodborne illnesses and/or deaths.” Learn how Loftware’s cloud-first approach to food safety compliance addresses this new ruling.

New regulation requirements can be formidable, especially in manufacturing when efficiency and cost-effectiveness are at the foundation. The first steps with compliance are understanding the full scope detailing the requirements, when it must be implemented, and the long-term impact the changes may have on business processes.

The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) 204 went into effect in January 2023 and the FDA has given companies until January 2026 to be compliant. Loftware’s cloud-first approach provides an option to help food and beverage companies take the guesswork out of implementing these requirements before the deadline. Some of the benefits of cloud-based labeling solutions are:

  • Automated processes, reducing labeling errors.
  • Traceability and scalability to provide real-time visibility.
  • Standardized labeling processes utilizing GS1 identifiers, QR codes, and traceability codes.

All these benefits enable companies to ensure the safety of their products which ultimately ensure consumers’ safety. Pragmatyxs provides support and consultant services in addition to a full implementation approach.
