Burton Software (www.BurtonSoftware.com), maker of Icicle, as a solution for middle and small food manufacturers. Steven Burton is the founder of Burton Software which offers the first affordable cloud-based solution to improve the safety of the world's food supply. Icicle, the flagship technology enables companies involved in the production, processing, and distribution of food products to develop and verify food safety plans. Icicle is the HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) solution that improves the quality and safety of products by developing tools that manage food safety plans, document procedures, and carries out inspections.
Steven Burton, who developed the Icicle solution noted, "Food companies now have the ability to fully synchronize operations across facilities and across the globe. The emergence of a new hazard or a change to any aspect of an existing hazard is immediately understood. Automatic alerts initiate recalls and modifications to existing formulas. Standard operating procedures (SOPs) are available to employees regardless of physical location. Documentation which validates food safety procedures can be printed on-demand to satisfy the requirements of auditors regardless of which specific certification authority certifies the company's products."
Burton knows this is the cutting edge of a global technology shift. Without being grandiose he is keenly aware this technology will save lives. "Seeing companies adopt our technology and watching the positive impact it makes on food safety standards is extremely fulfilling," Burton offered with humility.
