OSI enhances food safety, quality

The company is expanding use of remote video auditing by Arrowsight

OSI Group, LLC, a leading food processor and major supplier to the world’s leading branded food companies, has announced it will implement Arrowsight, Inc.’s third-party, 24/7/365 Remote Video Auditing (RVA) services in more of its food processing facilities across America.

OSI has signed a multi-facility agreement to expand the use of the Arrowsight program to augment the company’s existing food safety and quality RVA surveillance within its U.S. operations. This agreement will also be the basis for international expansion.

“We are proud to take this step to further utilize the latest cutting-edge technology to continue to enhance our food safety and quality systems,” said OSI President and Chief Operating Officer Dave McDonald. “We have been working with Arrowsight since 2005 implementing new innovative solutions using RVA, and we’re pleased to continue to drive new standards in the critically important area of food defense.”

OSI and Arrowsight have been collaborating to pioneer industry-leading solutions and further advance food defense in OSI’s manufacturing plants. For example, the RVA technology helps to ensure that trailers are sealed and that the strictest safety protocols are followed when handling food products. “The multipoint RVA capability provides OSI with a unique means to verify consistent and effective implementation of our food safety systems,” said Dr. Kenneth Petersen, OSI’s Senior Vice President of Quality and Regulatory Affairs.

“By auditing performance through the use of RVA and providing employees with immediate feedback while they work, OSI will be able to continually improve safety and efficiency at all of its plant operations in the U.S.,” said Arrowsight Inc. Chief Executive Officer Adam Aronson. “This RVA technology is a proven method for companies to better protect their food products."
