July 23, 2021 – Guelph, Ontario, Canada: Farm Health Guardian has been recognized in Maple Leaf Foods 2020 Sustainability Report this month, as the company’s digital farm traceability and biosecurity technology partner. The Farm Health Guardian system has been implemented into pork production operations at Maple Leaf Agri-Farms as their digital biosecurity solution and acknowledged for its role in the company’s Better Care pillar within the sustainability report.
“Throughout the challenges of 2020, Maple Leaf Foods has worked hard to prioritize the health and safety of its employees and the stability of its food supply, and we’ve been proud to support them,” says Tim Nelson, President and CEO, Be Seen Be Safe Ltd. Farm Health Guardian launched in October 2020 in North America, Europe and the United Kingdom, and is a product of Be Seen Be Safe Ltd.
Implementing Farm Health Guardian’s complete real-time disease mitigation platform to improve biosecurity was part of Maple Leaf Foods’ reported progress towards building its world-class animal care program. The company has worked closely with Farm Health Guardian to implement and adapt the digital platform into Maple Leaf Agri-Farms hog operations to reduce the risk of animal disease transmission, monitor on-farm personnel and vehicle movement and conduct biosecurity trace-backs in near real-time. The report highlights the platform’s role in reducing the risk of disease spread and saving hours of work compared with traditional paper-based methodologies.
A proven biosecurity software system, Farm Health Guardian, has been helping livestock and poultry operations like Maple Leaf Agri-Farms to improve their disease prevention and outbreak preparedness across Canada, the U.S. and the European Union.
“Congratulations to Maple Leaf Foods on their commitment to animal care and sustainability,” says Nelson. “We look forward to expanding Farm Health Guardian and our digital biosecurity system with other livestock and poultry operations so we can all protect the health of our industry.”
