ADC announces that a retailer located in the Midwest has selected InterScale Scales Manager and NutriGen Recipe Manager.

The retailer selected InterScale Scales Manager to use with their Hobart scales.  Additionally, the retailer selected InterScale to increase accurate scale labeling, provide visibility of scale communication errors and re-loading scales with item price and food safety information.

A Tier-One Grocery Chain Selects and Implements ADC’s Meat Grind Traceability Manager to Over 1,000 Stores

ADC announces that a tier-one grocery chain has selected ADC’s Meat Grind Traceability Manager and implemented the software to over 1,000 stores.

The P-Cubed Meat Grind Traceability Manager provides an electronic traceability record for all meat that is ground in stores, with sanitation records for the meat grinder equipment. 

“To automate the traceability of our meat grind process, we installed ADC’s P-Cubed Meat Grind Traceability Manager to replace our existing paper-based meat grind logs,” said the Director of Food Safety at the retailer.  “Our primary focus was transparent record retention and retrieval; however, we have also greatly reduced labor for our store associates with ADC’s software.”

With the P-Cubed Meat Grind Traceability Manager, store associates use a wireless handheld scanner to scan the barcodes of supplied meat as it is included in each batch of grind. Traceability of grind content data is retained in a centralized repository at the retailers HQ and is available for inquiry and reporting via PDF or exported to Excel for distribution or further review.

In order to ensure all of our stores were using the new meat grind process as quickly as possible, we set a very aggressive implementation schedule of 150 stores per week,” the Director of Food Safety continued.  “Our team then went back in to see how stores were adopting the software and to make sure the new processes were being followed.”

The data collection and reporting solutions meet all current United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) guidelines and best practices for traceability in meat grinding and grind equipment sanitation.  

“We are pleased to see how quickly and smoothly this retailer has implemented our P-Cubed Meat Grind Traceability Manager software,” said Steve Loveridge, ADC’s CEO.  “Meat grind traceability continues to be a current topic in food safety and we continue to work with regulatory bodies and retail food safety groups to ensure our software continues to help retailers meet and exceed these regulations, in the USA and abroad.”
