Built by Experts, for Experts
The safety and compliance demands of the food manufacturing industry play a major role in almost all aspects of daily operations. In the cannabis industry, these demands can be even more complex - due to the lack of federal legalization and universal standards.
To help professionals navigate these challenges, we developed the Rootwurks Learning Experience Platform (LXP), a comprehensive education, training, and compliance platform.
The LXP is the centerpiece of our mission at Rootwurks: To simplify training, help companies meet their regulatory obligations, and build a culture of compliance and safety that protects employees, customers, and businesses.
Rootwurks Founder Chase Eastman spent more than 15 years in food manufacturing safety, compliance, and workforce training - and saw firsthand how difficult these demands can be for industry professionals.
But his decision to build a training and compliance solution for food and cannabis began much closer to home.
When Chase’s mom was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in the early 2000s, she turned to all types of medications and treatments to find relief.
“My mom started experimenting with plant medicine and Eastern modalities to combat the side effects of the chemo and radiation. It was through this process that I was introduced to cannabis as a medicine versus a 'drug,” Chase said.
This experience inspired Chase to build a platform that would help the cannabis industry navigate the challenges of compliance and safety, using all of the know-how that he gained in the very demanding world of food manufacturing compliance.
At Rootwurks, we have developed a platform to help cannabis and food companies grow safely and responsibly and to help ease the burden of training and compliance. The platform and everything else we do at Rootwurks is central to our vision of helping companies in cannabis and food manufacturing thrive while also creating safer products, workplaces, and communities.
