Produce Show Daily Saturday, October 19, 2019 2 2 Food Safety Made Easy with BioSafe Systems Food safety concerns have skyrocketed as outbreaks of E. coli, listeria and sal- monella have emerged nationwide. In response, new regulation such as the Produce Safety Rule (PSR) under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is requiring vegetable/fruit growers and processors to adapt to higher food safety requirements with increased data logging of all food safety intervention steps. BioSafe Systems' SaniDate ® 15.0 and Smart Spray Bar System take away the complexities of meeting all current and future regulations, while streamlining an operation through industry leading sani- tation and food processing. Superior sanitation is achieved with SaniDate 15.0, an EPA approved food safety microbicide that utilizes advanced peroxyacetic acid (PAA) chemistry. SaniDate 15.0 is labeled to kill human health pathogens, including Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella enterica, Escherichia coli O157:H7 and Campylobacter jejuni. Additionally, its contact-kill chemistry is labeled to eliminate spoilage and decay-causing bacteria, yeasts, molds and fungi. SaniDate 15.0 is Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) compliant to treat raw produce wash and process waters for hydro coolers, flumes and spray bars. SaniDate 15.0's PAA-based formula gives it many advantages over chlorine-based chemistries used in post- harvest applications, including but not limited to: versatile applications – can be used on all hard food contact and non-food contact surfaces; no post rinse required – chemistry biodegrades into oxygen and water; does not off- gas and low corrosivity – gentle on equipment and personnel; OMRI-listed for organic production, USDA Certified, NSF Certified and Kosher Certified. BioSafe System's Smart Spray System offers thorough data-logging and reporting capabilities that makes meeting regulation and passing food safety audits simple and easy. By utilizing a specialized probe and cloud-based data logger, the Smart Spray Bar System allows real-time data moni- toring and manipulation of SaniDate 15.0 applications. The Smart Spray Bar System is capable of recording multiple data points for enhanced FSMA docu- mentation, including: PAA application in parts-per-million (PPM), day and time stamp when the system is operating, chemical tank levels, flow rates, ambient air temperature and pH of water being treated. By storing all data in the cloud, users have access to data anytime and anywhere via mobile-app or browser. Its thorough data reporting capabilities ensure that all cur- rent food-safety regulations are met, while also safeguarding an operation from any future regulatory requirements that are on the horizon. BioSafe Systems takes food safety seriously. In its mission to remain at the forefront of innovation and service in providing simple, sustainable and effec- tive solutions, SaniDate 15.0 paired with the Smart Spray Bar System is a simple yet comprehensive and extraordinarily effective solution that makes the com- plexities of food safety manageable.

Double D Farms Takes Organic Stewardship Seriously Double D Farms is proud to be a family, woman and minority owned business, run by agricultural entrepreneur Elvia Devine. One of the first females to lead a wholesale organic produce company, Elvia co-founded the successful Double D Farms, which began life as an almond grower in 1986. The company started growing organically during the burgeon- ing organic movement of the 1990s, and has been certified organic since 1997. Double D Farms takes organic stew- ardship seriously, and believes an impor- tant part of living organically is social and environmental responsibility. As such, the company does all it can to use recyclable containers and packaging, reduce food waste and take the best care of its employees. The welfare of its valued workers, and that of the earth it plants in, are Double D Farms' top priority. Its premi- um asparagus, broccoli, celery, onion, garlic, sweet corn and nuts are grown, harvested, packed and shipped with care by workers who are guaranteed habitable housing, indoor and outdoor recreational facilities, and nutritional meals. Eliminating food waste is an important part of the mission at Double D Farms. It strives to donate all commodities to food banks, depending on the season. Its aspara- gus shavings are sent to Bio Nutraceuticals to be used for medicinal purposes. In addition, all waste is disposed of via a local recycling company, which transforms food waste into rich compost for the next planting. Eighty to ninety percent of the compa- ny's packaging is recyclable, and it holds all areas in which it produces to the same standards. Double D Farms' organic farming practices are designed to encourage soil and water conservation, reduce pollu- tion and provide healthy, chemical-free food. The company does not use con- ventional methods to fertil- ize, control weeds or pre- vent diseases on organic produce. It invests in alternative, sustain- able stewardship and uses methods which prioritize health and the environ- ment. Growing organically is Double D Farms' passion and discovering new best practices is second nature. Visit Double D Farms at booth #270.
