Mission

The SafetySpect mission is to develop superior, proprietary food safety, defense and quality monitoring solutions. SafetySpect systems and solutions offer immediate, reliable detection of harmful contaminants in our food system that benefit consumer’s health, safety and well-being.

Data Science

SafetySpect will collect and maintain comprehensive data libraries of unique contaminant signatures and scans across the entire food supply chain unavailable to competitors due to its’ proprietary technology and methodology. SafetySpect will create value for customers and improve the quality of food through the use of artificial intelligence and deep learning models integrated into Blockchain systems.

Research and Collaboration

Strategic collaborations including leading universities and government agencies provide opportunities to apply our scientific approach to address the complex challenges in the food industry. SafetySpect has accessed the science community’s best minds to confirm device efficacy, compliance and regulatory validation.

Impact Investment

Impact investors seek financial return as well as measurable environmental, social and governance value (ESG). SafetySpect will make a profoundly positive impact on society by increasing health, safety and well-being through the deployment of our advanced optical sensing technology.

World Food Challenge

Growing world population, increased threats to food safety from fraud and bioterrorism, regulatory obligations, globalization of food chain, customer demand for accountability and transparency

Food Safety

1 in 6 people in the U.S. annually will become sick from a foodborne illness at an estimated annual economic cost of $77 billion

Food waste

One third of food wasted annually, equivalent to $1 trillion in retail sales

Food fraud

Intentional fraud costs the global food industry upwards of $40 billion a year

Food Testing Problem

SafetySpect is tackling the difficult issues of a complex food chain with multiple threat junctions

Issues

A complex food chain with multiple threat junctions, lacking sensor + Big Data / AI + Blockchain driven solution

Results

Are not real time and often obtained after distribution resulting in food borne illnesses and costly recalls

Testing

Current, random limited spot tests, leave little focus on origin, authentication, fraud and quality

Why

High upfront costs of testing equipment and prohibitive per test lab expense

Government

Regulatory compliance becoming more demanding

Accountable

Limitations on effective traceability

Legacy

Existing testing is based largely on 10-20 year-old tech (PCR / ELISA)

Food Testing Solution

SafetySpect devices (sensors) and software provide real-time, integrated, reliable detection of harmful contaminants and assessment of food quality at a fraction of the cost of legacy technologies

Transformative

Moving from reactive approach to proactive & preventative

Real Time

Testing is performed on-site in real time prior to shipments

Mass Volume

Enables the testing of larger quantities throughout the entire process, in an efficient manner increasing productivity & decreasing costs

Cost Effective

A fixed cost, scalable, and extensible solution which grows with the global business & regulatory needs

SafetySpect

Provides effective, customizable solutions for the major challenges facing the food industry

Labor

Less expertise needed for operating the devices / lower labor cost / no trained lab technician(s)

Competitive Advantage

Labor

Less expertise required, less costly to operate

Multiple Applications

Applications include contamination, quality, and adulteration/counterfeiting

Radically Reduced Cost

Allows for mass volume, cost effective, and expanded testing

Automation

Enables integration into IoT/ AI / Blockchain / robotics solutions

More and Better Data

Multiple scans across the supply chain creates more valuable data

Regulatory Value Added

Integration with government regulatory and security frameworks

Real-time Testing

On site analysis in seconds vs. lengthy off-site processing of test cultures
