"One of the components of this partnership with bioMérieux is the access to the services of the Predictive Diagnostics Innovation Center. The idea is that we can go to the planning, do this mapping, see the numbers, isolate the pathogens, and then the next stage is is sequencing and fingerprinting and finding the source to see the behavior of those organisms in the system."
"There's a lot of different microbiology testing platforms out there, a lot of different testing companies, but the best advantage, and one of the reasons I love working with bioMérieux, is the customer service has been over the top."
"Working with bioMérieux has been really fun, because we've just been so excited about the results. We're so happy to see that this system is working well through all of these matrices and that it will be that quick turnaround time for our partners, our clients."
"If you have good testing at the end, nothing goes out to the market that will be wrong, but if your prevention fails and you detect it, then it goes into waste, and won’t enter the market. Our promise is always to work on prevention. We don't want waste in our plants, but we have a very robust sampling plan and a lot of methods that we use to test different parameters or attributes of the food that we release."
"Advice to the next generation of food safety leaders is to remember that when we're making food, we're not making a product. Be very open to new technologies and new ways of doing things, don't settle for the standard old way of doing things."
Saving time as well as unlocking value from data are benefits of moving towards a preventive strategy rather than a corrective one: this is the next step according to Gérald Andriot, COO at Isigny Sainte-Mère. bioMérieux's goal is to bring the right answer through Predictive Diagnostics.
In a fast-changing world, having fast & reliable results is key when it comes to the quality of infant formula. The hard work invested by both companies, allowed the time-to-result to be reduced from 96 hours, to 20 hours.
Isigny Sainte-Mère is an independent dairy cooperative located in Normandy (France) whose origins date back to 1909. The rich pastures of this exceptional terroir are the source of prestigious and luxuriant grazing, a truly great source of butter and cream.
Rob Conover (Quality Manager, Kettlehouse Brewing Company), Denise Morin (QA/QC Manager, Beau’s Brewing), and Antonio Greco (Microbiology Director, Breckenridge Brewery) discuss upgrading to the BREWPRO™ system and the big advantage it provides by combining several necessary tests into one, saving precious lab time.
Rob Conover (Quality Manager, Kettlehouse Brewing Company), Taylor Simkins (Quality Control Manager, Anderson Valley Brewing Company), and Lauren Appleman (Lab Manager, Cape May Brewery) discuss the shortcomings of traditional micro methods and how the quick workflow and real-time aspect of the VERIFLOW® suite eases and reduces the lab process.
Denise Morin (QA/QC Manager, Beau’s Brewing) discusses contract brewing and the uncertainty that comes with transporting beer from their facility to another. VERIFLOW® helps give them peace of mind during this process by allowing them to check beer quality both before and after transport.

As a premium supplier to the biggest retail chains in Europe, Simmental needs to maintain an extremely high-quality production process. Eliminating manual data collection processes has helped Simmental streamline workflows and prevent contamination.
Simmental utilizes an in-house laboratory that relies on simple tools with high flexibility and rapid turnaround capabilities. With everything in-house, results are swiftly analyzed and valuable time is saved.
Simmental makes sure to keep up with market trends, while ensuring they put farmers first. This includes addressing the growing demand for plant-based products by only using cows with the beta casein A2 inside.
On any given day, Simmental receives milk from many different regions: from mountainous, snowy terrains to tranquil fields where cows graze. The biggest challenge is creating consistent and cohesive products out of these varying types of milk.
Dairy products are complex to manufacture. In order to achieve optimal levels of control, numerous components are required. It’s important to generate data in high quantities at a maximum level of frequency, with the analysis carried out by system and data experts to allow us to master the process. In parallel, as we already have a decent amount of data we can get started.
Data is generated everywhere and at any time. This perpetual cycle raises the question of getting the best out of data to better share information, to create paperless workflows and capitalize on visual representations, all of which are a good place to start when thinking in terms of trends, helping to accelerate decision making.
If we are to ensure food safety & quality without testing finished products, then the skills and knowledge of people need to be placed at the heart of the discussion to get as close as possible to process control.
To decide on the release of a product, numerous parameters are considered when it comes to sampling: representability, size of the sample, the shortness of the time to result, with the possibility of constantly optimizing and improving.
