Gibson Produce Improves Inspection Management with Field ID

Toronto - June 15, 2012 - Gibson Produce, one of the largest producers of watermelons and quality produce serving east coast United States, has implemented Field ID inspection management software for the iPad and iPhones to boost efficiency, save time and ensure complete compliance with food safety regulations and quality assurance requirements. The company estimates the time required to manage compliance, sanitation and quality assurance will be reduced by 75 per cent with the help of Field ID's industry leading inspection and safety management software.

As one of the largest shippers of watermelon and produce on the east coast, Gibson Produce operates farms and packing houses in Florida, Delaware, Texas, Georgia and Mexico and provides quality produce to customer including Ahold Group, Whole Foods, Harris Teeter and Sam's Club. Gibson Produce must manage daily inspections, compliance and quality assurance across each of these operations from a central location for GFSI compliance.

"Using Field ID for all of our food safety compliance and quality assurance will reduce the time spent on inspections by about 75 per cent," said Trevor Colom, Director of Food Safety. "Managing over a hundred inspections each month used to result in hours of dealing with endless paperwork, but Field ID for the iPad and the iPhone has changed the way we approach all of our inspections and corrective actions at every farm and packing house. Field ID helps us deliver on our promise of producing only the highest quality watermelons to our customers."

Prior to digitizing inspection management with Field ID, the company used traditional pen and paper-based processes to manage compliance and quality assurance, including SQF-GFSI certifications, HACCP compliance and verification, and other standards.

"At Field ID, we've made safety and compliance as simple as possible for our users," said Somen Mondal, CEO, Field ID. "We're proud to provide a solution that's not just easy-to-use, but customizable and powerful enough to support companies in various industries - from agriculture to construction and mining to industrial services."
