Scott Druker, general manager for Arm & Hammer Animal and Food Production, said the acquisition of Iowa based Passport Food Safety Solutions brings the business novel post-harvest technologies and expertise in food safety.
“This allows us to fully engage a customer in a farm-to-fork food safety discussion," he told us.
Passport Food Safety Solutions helps processors meet food safety requirements through the use of intervention technologies, artificial intelligence, predictive modeling, plant-specific metric analysis, a food safety analytics platform and products to reduce pathogen presence.
The acquisition is part of Arm & Hammer’s effort to provide a comprehensive portfolio of “nutritional, microbial and pre- and post-harvest food safety solutions” that improve the health and production of livestock, the company said.
The deal also supports Arm & Hammer’s long-term plan to diversify its activities, said Druker.
“The combination of companies is positive for both, and they share several core values including a commitment to research and innovation, environmental awareness and a focus on helping generate a safe and affordable food supply,” he said.
