Strategic partnership to further the digitalization of food safety

26 May 2021

Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection is partnering with EVRYTHNG to provide food manufacturers, retailers and brand owners with an end-to-end traceability and food production reporting solution. 

The goal is to enable aggregation of product data at every point in the value chain, for visibility, validation and real-time intelligence. Having full visibility of all product data will help to identify ingredient and packaging issues early in the manufacturing process facilitating product recalls and traceability to the precise location of substandard product in the marketplace for quick retrieval.
The joint proposition is achieved by Mettler-Toledo ProdX device data management software monitoring and collecting product inspection information in real-time. The software records all inspection activity from Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection systems - notably metal detectors, x-ray inspection, checkweighers and vision inspection technologies. This data can be integrated and modelled in the EVRYTHNG Product Cloud, applying a new level of data intelligence to advance audit, reporting and food traceability use cases for multi stakeholder groups.
The integration between these technologies is founded in and aligned with the emerging digitalisation programmes from food safety bodies such as the FDA and the GFSI. EVRYTHNG co-chaired the GS1 Standards Development Working Group and contributed critical intellectual property that created the GS1 Digital Link Standard. This upgrades the traditional barcode to make every product smartphone-interactive and web-connected.
“The digital transformation in food manufacturing is going to happen: it’s a question of when, rather than if,” said Rob Rogers, senior advisor Food Safety & Regulations of Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection. “We want to help food manufacturers to embrace that transformation, by making it as easy as possible for them. The two major factors they will need to address right at the outset are the gathering of manufacturing data and being able to simply and efficiently deploy that data to improve food safety and supply chain performance. The partnership between Mettler-Toledo and EVRYTHNG is about developing and providing a robust and proven infrastructure to handle that wealth of digital data”.
