FOOD DEFENSE AND SECURITY SEALS
Oct 30, 2017

As a prominent manufacturer of tamper evident security seals and solutions, following the blogs and focus groups on Linkedin, who are discussing Food Defense and the risks associated with intentional contamination of the food chain, raises concerns, or at least serious questions.

As food manufacturers- and processors move through their individual food chain vulnerability studies, the consensus appears to be that focusing on, and investing in, the mitigation of all risk that is “within arm’s reach”, is warranted and justifiable.  Such warranted investments are typically associated with perimeter defense, access control, video surveillance and employee screening.

Generally speaking, whenever a food product is being transported, it is also vulnerable to intentional contamination.

Therefore, it is imperative that the “chain of custody” of the food chain is protected by high quality security seals that provide real security value, by offering a high degree of “tamper resistance” and tamper indication features.

The argument is this: A seal is NOT just a seal.

The “last point of defense” in a food company’s   chain of custody - is a mechanical security seal…typically acquired for much less than $ 1.00 each.

Security seals are used to secure dome lids and discharge valves on tank trailers, trailer doors on truck trailers and rail cars, and of course ocean container doors. Good security seals provide clear signs of tampering, will resist a wide variety of tamper attempts, and are of consistent quality.
