Borton Fruit’s Digital Journey with Neogen® Analytics

September 28, 2023

About the Webinar

Borton Fruit is one of the largest tree fruit producers in the U.S. Tracing its roots back to 1912 when the family farm was established, Borton is fueled by a desire to grow, pack, and ship high-quality fruit and provide the freshest, most flavorful eating experience possible. When Jeremy Leavitt, Head of Food Safety and Compliance, joined Borton over eight years ago with experience in quality assurance and environmental programs, he identified an opportunity to improve testing structure, access to data, and improve reporting by implementing Neogen Analytics digital food safety data platform.

In this webinar, Jeremy discussed Borton’s digital journey and how the change from manual spreadsheets and paper-based testing systems to an integrated, digital food safety platform impacted the organization.
