Advancing Food Chain Transparency through Partnerships
We're excited today to announce a partnership with 1WorldSync, the leading multi-enterprise product information network, to provide the food supply industry with a supply chain traceability solution that delivers transparency while tackling food safety and compliance issues.
The foodservice industry is under intense pressure for complete and accurate product information as it relates to consumer safety and the growing use of web-based platforms in the foodservice supply chain. FoodLogiQ will leverage 1WorldSync’s suite of tools that provide data validity, quality, and intelligence while enabling customers to maintain a seamless connection with trading partners to make sure accurate, complete product information is flowing through the supply chain at all times.
“Food industry trends are changing fast—sometimes faster than what you and your supply chain can keep up with. From the customer demand for transparency to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s mandate for better processes, traceability is no longer just a nice-to-have asset. Without this sort of insight, keeping up with the evolving industry will be highly problematic, if not impossible,” explained Dean Wiltse, CEO of FoodLogiQ.
“The Fresh Industry has struggled in the past in figuring out a way to engage in true data synchronization with their Retail and Foodservice partners,” explained Nick Manzo, Global Omni-Channel Lead, at 1WorldSync. “1WorldSync's product information and Fresh Industry solutions coupled with FoodLogiQ's track/traceability and supply chain management capabilities allows the Fresh Industry an opportunity to be fully engaged in global product information sharing."
Historically, the foodservice industry has focused on how to manufacture, distribute and sell items. However, in recent years there has been a shift to provide transparency and visibility driving foodservice manufacturers, brokers, distributors and operators to address new requirements from their customers, as well as government regulations for menu labeling and other nutritional standards.
