The American Frozen Food Institute (AFFI), Arlington, Va., announced a collaboration with EyeSucceed, Ann Arbor, Mich., to become the exclusive trade association partner representing the food and beverage manufacturing industry. EyeSucceed brings together the power of assisted reality (AR) and smart glass technology to transform how the food industry implements food safety practices and address real-world challenges.

“EyeSucceed is defining how smart glasses can be used in the frozen food industry to deliver unparalleled results,” says Jennifer Tong, president and co-founder of EyeSucceed. “We look forward to working with AFFI and its members, as we develop and launch new applications for the food industry.”

EyeSucceed has been piloting smart glass livestreaming functionality for the last three years with food industry clients in the United States, Latin America, Europe and Asia. The ability to livestream from around the globe allows the food industry to view first production runs, conduct supplier quality calibration and assist field operations by providing expertise from remote locations while increasing efficiency and saving travel dollars.

EyeSucceed can also be used as an interactive, hands-free training experience for food industry employees.

“Tailored specifically to a company’s individual facility needs, this technology can transform how the frozen food industry applies enhanced food safety practices,” says Dr. Donna Garren, executive vice president of science and policy for AFFI. “In addition, EyeSucceed will drive consistency of food safety training that is frequently lost with one employee training another, as not all trainers provide the same message.”
