Church & Dwight Co, the parent company of US feed additive and animal health company, Arm & Hammer Animal and Food Production, has acquired a food safety focuses business.

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.
