Bureau Veritas’ digital solutionS

BEYOND ALL CERTIFICATIONS, BUREAU VERITAS IS DEVELOPING DIGITAL SOLUTION TO IMPROVE SAFETY AND QUALITY ALONG THE SUPPLY CHAIN

1. SAFEOPS

SafeOps is a smart and cost-efficient solution for retailers and restaurant chains, enabling them to improve their food safety culture. With SafeOps, field operators can digitally capture food safety data (removing paper), all the information being consolidated in a central dashboard accessible at central level. Corrective actions can then be taken based on the analysis of exhaustive data, and smart training plans can be put in place to improve food safety. If Bureau Veritas does not already deliver certification for you, our teams are available to discuss with you the opportunity to put this solution in place.

2. SafeSupply

More than ever, regulators, NGOs and consumers are scrutinizing food companies’ sourcing and supply chain practices. Bureau Veritas’ SafeSupply platform helps businesses assess their suppliers by feeding macro data and supplier-generated information into a powerful algorithm to rank supplier risk through an individualized risk score. Each risk is unique per supplier and is also customized for each food company analyzing its supply chain.
