Maintaining Service Excellence as a Major Supplier with Stratas Foods


With over 1,000 employees servicing large customers like Captain D’s, industry-leading supplier Stratas Foods stays ahead of the curve to ensure they are delivering fresh, cost-effective products to their clients.

Having good suppliers for restaurants and retailers is almost as important as having the best food. They go hand in hand, since both the quality of the products, along with their price and availability, are crucial to success. Overpriced supplies can break the budget before the doors even open. On the other hand, cutting corners on quality can destroy a reputation and leave customers looking for better quality somewhere else.

In Wake of Romaine Lettuce Recall, FoodLogiQ Calls Supply Chain Management and Food Traceability "More Important Than Ever"


"When you consider that 3,000 people die every year from foodborne illness—that's one 9/11 every year," says FoodLogiQ CEO Sean O'Leary. "That's unacceptable because this is a preventable issue, and unfortunately, these illnesses are an underreported public health problem."

FoodLogiQ shared thoughts from corporate leadership today in the wake of the ongoing E. coli outbreak linked to romaine lettuce.  The affected produce has sickened 67 people in 19 states, with 39 hospitalizations and six cases of kidney failure, according to a November 26, 2019 update from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As of today, no deaths have been attributed to the E. coli outbreak.

Intentional Food Adulteration of Supply Chain Continues to Plague Industry


Food fraud is on the rise due in part to a complex and fragmented global food supply chain. Learn about the factors that contribute to food adulteration and what the industry can do to implement safeguards against bad actors.

Consumers have become leery of where their food comes from and the kinds of raw materials they may be exposed to. With recurring news coverage of fraud or negligence within the supply chain, blind trust in food brands is at an all time low. A recent article in the Triangle Business Journal tells the story of a North Carolina-based seafood company being hit with a $500,000 fine for falsely labeling millions of dollars worth of crab meat as being a “Product of the USA.”
