48 million Americans get sick from food every year. In response, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is joining global forces such as GS1 in a push for tech-enabled traceability and predictive analytics.

As international supply chains transition to fully digital records, how can food companies improve competitive positioning through trust and transparency? What are the best practices for controlling data visibility, and how can food safety data transform quality control?

In this webinar, John Keogh and Kevin Davies will unpack expert views of traceability and supply chain technology. Each will share a 15-minute presentation, including a live software demonstration, followed by 20 minutes of audience Q&A.

Without software, information rarely leaves paper forms, making it difficult to continuously improve compliance and quality in food. Provision has built food safety software that boosts speed and accuracy in data entry, creating a central insight hub that can quickly manage inventory, audits, and analytics.

Provision software is based on customizable food safety forms. Users can set rules for their data to catch deviations as they happen, and can autofill form sections from prior submissions. The forms automatically track inventory by location through each production stage, enabling efficient mock recall compliance. And any data collected in Provision forms can populate customizable reports. This allows data-driven decisions, by correlating process variables with product outcomes.

Provision is available for as little as $49/month, and can be rolled out for enterprise clients with full service engagements. The software is now used for over half of the cold food in transit across Canada.  For more information, visit
