We are very proud to announce that iMonitor received Commendation for Significant Contribution to Food Safety yesterday for our support to the New Zealand food industry during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The New Zealand Institute of Food Science and Technology (NZIFST) and Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) acknowledged how we helped New Zealand food businesses manage their COVID-19 practices via an immediate and comprehensive online resource center and more than 600 individual phone call consultations. Amongst others, we provided food businesses with COVID-19 guidelines specifically tailored to their industry and created a COVID-19 checklist for food and pharmaceutical businesses.
Our colleague and food scientist Shakeel Ahmed proudly received the award for the whole iMonitor team during the ceremony on 29 October in Auckland. “We feel very honored that our commitment to helping food businesses maneuver through the pandemic is recognized with this award” says Ahmed, “It was self-evident for us that we would support our customers in these unprecedented times. It was incredible how the whole food industry came together and helped each other.”
iMonitor’s food quality and safety management platform enables manufacturers, hospitality businesses, and food retailers to digitize their food quality and safety management, enhancing food safety culture among staff and facilitating ongoing regulatory compliance.
