Most innovative AgTech startup
FoodLogiQ was recognized by Forbes Magazine as being one of the top 25 most innovative AgTech startups last year.
“Imagine a day when you could be notified electronically when a food product goes out of temperature range anywhere in your supply or connect bluetooth data loggers directly into a traceability platform. That day is today,” said FoodLogiQ CEO Dean Wiltse.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Testo, a global giant in automated quality management, and look forward to enabling our customers to take advantage of this partnership.”
FoodLogiQ and Testo partnership benefits:
- Fully Connected Digital HACCP Capabilities: The food industry has been plagued by the inefficiency of paper-based processes and highly reactive safety procedures. The FoodLogiQ-Testo partnership will connect a HACCP-certified measurement data monitoring system with the industry’s food safety SaaS platform.
- Temperature Monitoring and Quality Notifications: The global food chain is expanding and food is covering a greater distance between supplier and consumer. Using Testo temperature probes, food companies can measure temperatures and set predetermined limits for different types of products or locations. When those products go outside those limits, anywhere from the loading dock to the freezer case, FoodLogiQ’s platform will automatically push quality incident notifications to anyone who needs to be informed.
- Proactive Product Movement Monitoring: With consumer demand and regulatory requirements looming, the need for a better understanding of product movement across the supply chain is driving traceability initiatives to the forefront for food companies. Pairing mobile temperature sensors with traceability data will allow food companies to pinpoint exactly where and when in the chain of custody if product goes out of temperature range.
Bill Pezza, president, Testo North America, said the two companies are working to create a safer, more efficient food supply chain around the world.

“This joint partnership will completely change the way food companies manage their quality and food safety programs,” he added.

Testo based in Germany is recognized as a leader in the design, development, and manufacture of portable test and measurement instrumentation.
