Safe food for all!
FoodDocs was founded by a couple of female HACCP consultants – Karin Repp and Katrin Liivat in 2017. With over three decades of shared experience in the food industry, they are well aware of one of the biggest problems in the food industry, which is managing food safety management systems, including creating a HACCP plan.
They have come up with the concept of FoodDocs after seeing thousands of companies and food businesses in trouble with their compliance documents. They created FoodDocs HACCP software to help business owners create their HACCP plan and manage their food safety management systems more easily. FoodDocs has included machine learning in their HACCP software to ensure food safety compliance. Also, it includes the regulations for all countries including the US and the UK, thereby providing safe food for all.
