About us

We are a Food Tech firm in Food Safety Systems. We are global experts in setting up and maintaining Food Safety systems for companies in the Food Supply Chain. Privately owned and completely independent.

In our Partnership Program we would like to work together with (Non)Governmental Organizations, Universities, Multinationals and Food companies.


iMIS Food Global

iMIS Food Global is a fully equipped Food Safety platform for developing countries. Unique is the installation of an iMIS Food server at the Food company, for online and offline availability.

The online (no travel costs) supported iMIS Food implementation process includes 6 to 10 days of support and has a lead time of 3 months.

Our Market

Our target group is the global Food Supply Chain. This sector is increasingly confronted with legislation and regulations in the field of product quality, hygiene and food safety. The rules are not only determined nationally, but often originate from all kinds of international bodies. Customers of these companies often work with their own standards systems. Companies must ensure the implementation of sound Food Safety systems. Even if all the requirements of the various laws and regulations are met, problems cannot be ruled out completely. That is why it is necessary that it is always possible to demonstrate compliance with all Food Safety requirements.
