The new Daily Plan allows food safety plans to be quickly developed using the full power of the Icicle system without requiring any long-term commitment. Subscribers can cancel at any time. The Monthly Plan is designed for members who need to develop a one-time only comprehensive food safety plan. This subscription is month-to-month and members can cancel any time.

Icicle, the flagship technology enables companies involved in the production, processing, and distribution of food products to develop and verify food safety plans.

Icicle provides the technology necessary to collect the required data and then automatically generates food safety plans. Changes to individual ingredients, materials, processes or packaging are automatically propagated throughout the system, insuring that plans are kept current across product lines and plants. Users are guided users through the HACCP analysis process where hazards are identified and addressed. Authorized users can generate HACCP plans for any facility, including multiple plans per facility and customized plans for specific product groups or customers.

Burton 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 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.”
