About Us

What we do.

Food safety is our passion. Making it safer and easier to implement food safety interventions is our main focus.

Using multi-hurdle intervention technologies, plant-specific metrics, a novel food safety analytics platform and consultation, Passport™ Food Safety Solutions helps meat and poultry processors optimize pathogen reduction in their plants.

Why we do it.

Throughout the world, an estimated 600 million cases of foodborne illness occur each year.1 48 million of those cases are estimated to occur in the United States.2

Foodborne illness is caused by consuming foods or beverages contaminated by bacteria, viruses, parasites or chemicals.

Based on data for both public health costs and the quality-of-life impact, meat and poultry are the largest contributors to foodborne pathogen diseases.

The cost of a product recall caused by an outbreak can be astronomical due to lost product and sales, liability, litigation and damage to an individual brand—and to consumers’ confidence in the safety of their food.

Even though multiple interventions are used pre- and postharvest to reduce/eliminate pathogens, current solutions have not been 100 percent effective. Controlling pathogen impact is a balance of prevention, intervention and detection.

That’s why ensuring a high level of food safety is a priority for everyone involved with producing and processing meat protein. Innovation is essential to meet new regulatory requirements and consumers’ expectations.

Who we are.

In 2018, Passport Food Safety Solutions became part of the ARM & HAMMER family of brands, furthering ARM & HAMMER’s mission to create a safe and affordable food supply everywhere.
