Transparency in the Supply Chain: A Case Study in Manufacturing with Frontier Co-op

We enjoy spices for the complexity they afford our food—adding the depth and dimension that give various cuisines their unique and identifiable flavor profile. Manufacturers behind these products are navigating a supply chain as diverse as the seasoning they bring to the table. Learn how Frontier Co-op resolved supply chain challenges related to the intricacies of global spices and oils.

Join us for our industry webinar featuring Greg Sommerville as he discusses how to build transparency and efficiency into a global supply chain. Sommerville is the founder of Global Supplier Verification (GSV) as well as consultant to Frontier Co-op, a cooperatively-owned wholesaler of natural and organic products under the Frontier Co-op, Simply Organic and Aura Cacia brands.

With a complex supply chain of more than 1,800 ingredients and diverse materials including herbs and teas, spices, essential oils and packaging from hundreds of suppliers in over 50 countries and six continents, Frontier needed help managing suppliers and documentation, in addition to tracking and tracing their products.

The Co-op is committed to elevating their vendors and partners, as well as ensuring their customers and over 45,000 member-owners are the recipients of the highest quality food unmarred by adulteration or food fraud. Learn how Frontier leveraged FoodLogiQ Connect to increase transparency across their supply chain, while simultaneously prioritizing organics, purity, and social justice.

Live webinar key takeaways include:

  • How Frontier was able to build an online supplier community and gain complete control over their document management and supplier approval program with FoodLogiQ Connect’s Manage + Monitor.
  • Why having the ability to trace ingredients at the batch-lot level was so important to Frontier, and how they're partnering with FoodLogiQ to foster a clear, transparent supply chain.
  • How Frontier's collaboration with FoodLogiQ’s Customer Success team has been an integral part of their success.
