JBS adopts video monitoring at all 8 U.S. beef plants

JBS USA’s beef division, based in Greeley, CO, Dec. 2 said it is installing remote video surveillance camera systems at all of its eight beef plants, to enhance food safety, product quality and animal handling.

“Within weeks of installing the (initial monitoring system) we were able to improve the accuracy of our auditing,” said John Riley, the company’s head of technical services. “By measuring the performance of our workers and providing them with immediate feedback…JBS will be able to continually measure and improve our food safety systems.”

Among other meatpackers to have adopted the technology is Cargill, which announced the move in March, 2009.
