FoodLogiQ, the leading SaaS provider of food safety compliance, whole chain traceability, and supply chain transparency solutions, today announced its support of the American Frozen Food Institute (AFFI), the only national trade association that advocates solely on behalf of the frozen food and beverage industry.
FoodLogiQ joins AFFI as an associate member as well as a Food Safety Supporter of the upcoming AFFI Food Safety Leadership Conference being held in conjunction with the association's annual meeting in San Diego in February. FoodLogiQ will also be recognized as a preferred provider on the to-be launched AFFI Food Safety Zone, an online resource for frozen food and beverage manufacturers to access and implement the needed elements of their food safety plans.
“We are pleased to welcome FoodLogiQ’s support of AFFI and our joint commitment to advancing food safety,” said AFFI President and CEO Alison Bodor. “Technology partners are an important ally in AFFI’s food safety initiative and our members’ continued investment in food safety.”
AFFI’s Food Safety Leadership Conference will provide education and programming centered on the prevention of Listeria monocytogenes (Lm), including an overview of the lessons learned and global regulatory implications from high-profile Lm outbreaks in Europe and South Africa. At the 2019 inaugural event, AFFI will also unveil newly developed frozen food safety protocols. These new protocols are the direct result of the expertise and collaboration of the scientific professionals within AFFI’s Food Safety Working Group.
The fast-growing food technology company is already dominating the foodservice industry, boasting a customer base that includes Buffalo Wild Wings, CAVA, Chipotle Mexican Grill, CKE Restaurants, Compass Group USA, Five Guys Burgers and Fries, IPC/SUBWAY, Panda Restaurant Group, Raising Cane’s, sweetgreen and Tropical Smoothie Cafe. FoodLogiQ’s reach extends across the entire supply chain to include food manufacturers such as Tyson Foods, Hain-Celestial and Smithfield Foods, food retailers including Whole Foods Market, as well as hundreds of growers, co-packers and produce marketers. FoodLogiQ was also recognized the last two years in a row by Forbes Magazine as being one of the top 25 most innovative AgTech startups.

AFFI works to advance food safety and advocates before legislative and regulatory entities on the industry’s behalf to create an environment where members’ foods and beverages are proudly chosen to meet the needs of a changing world.
