Every year, a small percentage of food processing facilities are destroyed in industrial accidents. But 2022 has been ESPECIALLY ACTIVE, with over 20 fires at food facilities so far and it’s gotten a lot of people wondering — what is going on?! Sadly the answer is… we don’t know.
Unfortunately, fires are not uncommon but the rate at which we have seen food processing plants go up in flames has got some speculating that they were targeted and set for the purpose of further disruption of our food supply chain. Even the FBI released a statement to warn Agricultural Cooperatives of targeted ransomware attacks.

Regardless if you think the processing facility fires are coincidence or part of a grand conspiracy to cripple the American people we can all agree that it’s terrible!
If in fact our food processing plants are being attacked it leaves site managers and CEO’s scrambling as to how to protect themselves. If the threat is a cyber attack then a CCTV system is of little use, BUT if they are being physically attacked then investing in a video surveillance system for processing plants is a great place to start.
Unlike many systems, our systems do not have foreign backdoor access. The two largest security camera manufacturers in the world have been banned by the the US Government for hackable backdoors and other problems. Both are Chinese Government owned (Dahua and Hikvision). They also make more than 60 other brands that you may not be aware of. Click here to see a partial list.
None of our equipment is manufactured by these banned companies!
