Ben Sampson of Outsell for Startups podcast recently sat down with Corvium CEO and Founder Jeff Swartz and Michael Koeris, respectively. If you've ever experienced the awful effect of food poisoning, I'm sure you never looked at that meal or food the same way again.
Companies are under more pressure now than ever to keep food safe for consumers. But as Sampson says, "The question of “is this food safe?” is likely in the back of all our minds. It’s a risk that we all must take, and if you think that we, the consumers, are really putting ourselves on the line, think of the companies that feed millions of people. Just the idea that someone might get sick from your product is a wee bit stressful.
EnterCorvium. Corvium is obsessed with making the world a safer place to eat. The company does this by providing companies in the food industry with real-time insights and data informing the varying risk of current food operations. I had a fantastic time sitting down with Michael Koeris, the founder, and Jeff Swartz, the CEO, as we talked about the state of food safety, what consumers should be aware of today, and how Corvium is making our world a safer place to eat."
