NextLOGiK to present food safety software at Colorado agriculture conference

CompWALK software for farms highlighted at the Colorado Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association Conference

COLUMBIA, Md.—Columbia, Maryland-based software development firm NextLOGiK will present two food safety software solutions for growers, CompWALK and CompWALK.farm, at the Colorado Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association (CFVGA) 2019 Conference.

The introduction of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule brought additional regulatory requirements that fresh produce growers must adhere to. This year, the CFVGA is showcasing food safety software solutions to educate and assist farms in complying with the new regulations.

NextLOGiK developed CompWALK and CompWALK.farm, two solutions that simplify compliance and food safety management practices. CompWALK is a web and mobile food safety management solution for medium-to-large organizations in the food industry, while CompWALK.farm provides food safety educational resources and documentation management specifically for small farms.

“CFVGA is excited to feature a showcase of food safety software, Feb. 25, during our fifth annual conference,” said Marilyn Bay Drake, CFVGA executive director. “On-farm food safety technologies, practices and recordkeeping requirements have become increasingly complex, so we are happy to introduce growers to any tools that will help them grow more efficiently.”

The CFVGA 2019 Conference will take place on Feb. 25 to 26 at the Renaissance Hotel in Denver, Colorado. NextLOGiK will present during the 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. sessions—“Software Solutions for Produce Food Safety”—on Monday, Feb. 25.

“Farms of all sizes are experiencing a shift in operations to support increased regulations,” said Kirk Couser, CEO of NextLOGiK. “We strive to provide a helpful and affordable food safety solution, whether you have 10 acres or 1,000.”
