Food safety and quality assurance management solution provider SafetyChain Software has acquired Vigilistics, Inc., a leading provider of quality, profitability and sustainability solutions for food and beverage manufacturers.

“We have been very impressed with the Vigilistics’ solutions and the proven, quick-win ROI for their customers, which include many leading, recognizable brands,” says Barry Maxon, SafetyChain president. “SafetyChain’s acquisition of Vigilistics provides another level of depth and breadth to our food safety and quality management solutions.
