PassTrac Analytics, a division of Passport Food Safety Solutions, Inc., announces its exclusive industry partnership with PurePredictive, an innovative company that uses a powerful predictive modeling and prescriptive analytics technology for meat protein companies to enhance their food safety programs and operational efficiencies within their operations.

“Managing food safety systems is increasingly more complex. Historical methods to track and analyze traditional food safety indicators are reaching their limitations. Customers need innovative solutions to help them,” says John Ruby, Vice President, PassTrac Analytics. “This innovative technology from PurePredictive enables PassTrac to take analytics well-beyond anything currently being done in the food safety industry. We can provide critical insights that meat protein companies need in order to make the most proactive and cost-efficient decisions possible.”

PassTrac Analytics can help packers and processors reduce the presence of pathogenic bacteria such as Shiga toxin-producing E. coli and Salmonella. First, microbial data is received from the plant, and PassTrac Analytics enhances it with relevant operational and environmental data. Then, it uses PurePredictive’s advanced patented technology to find patterns that would otherwise go undetected by a data expert using traditional statistical techniques. The insights created from these models identify opportunities to optimize food safety programs, to reduce risk and to enhance profitability for the plant.

“Our patented predictive modeling technology is unique in providing remarkable precision with greater speed. While it has been applied effectively in other industries, food safety presents a unique opportunity to make a momentous difference,” says Trajan Bayly, CEO at PurePredictive. “By adding PurePredictive’s innovative technology to PassTrac Analytics’ deep industry expertise and powerful analytical capabilities, Passport Food Safety Solutions will be able to help meat protein companies not only reduce their risk, but proactively reduce foodborne pathogens more effectively and economically than the industry has been able to do before now.”
