FoodLogiQ Makes Rapid Gains in CPG Industry, Welcoming Laird Superfood to Growing List of Customers
Fast-growing consumer packaged goods company chooses FoodLogiQ to achieve streamlined supply chain management, traceability and customer transparency
FoodLogiQ is quickly becoming the solution of choice for consumer packaged goods companies pursuing global supply chain visibility, streamlined supplier management, and quality issue tracking and reporting. Among the CPG companies to recently join FoodLogiQ’s growing customer base is Laird Superfood.
The consumer packaged goods industry faces a host of supply chain and food safety challenges, many of which relate to quick and easy access to data and technology. As consumer demand for transparency grows and regulatory standards become more stringent, the industry must strive to meet these expectations while maximizing efficiency across their operations. An increasing number of CPG businesses are turning to technology to help automate and improve their supplier engagement, traceability, case-level labeling and food safety efforts.
“FoodLogiQ is expanding at a rapid pace in the CPG industry, and we are pleased to welcome Laird Superfood to our growing list of customers,” said Sean O’Leary, FoodLogiQ CEO. “They have joined an elite group of food safety forerunners who are proactively streamlining their operations while answering the call for greater transparency for their consumers. FoodLogiQ is committed to providing our new customers with the visual and analytical reporting that will help drive strategic decisions for their businesses.”
With FoodLogiQ Connect, CPG companies are working to:
Transition out of spreadsheets and emails and to engage with suppliers in a centralized, online communications platform.
Manage supplier approvals, keep notes on suppliers, and message directly with them.
Build and monitor a Supplier Dashboard to see exactly which suppliers have expired documentation and failed audits and which suppliers have the most quality incidents.
Ease compliance woes with streamlined supplier documentation and template workflows to assemble food safety plans, implement corrective actions, support supplier verification, and centralize required recordkeeping.
Capture and track quality issues with FoodLogiQ’s mobile app to document quality issues when products are received.
FoodLogiQ and Compass Group Collaborate on Supplier Management
As the largest contract foodservice company in the world, UK-based Compass Group has operations in 50 countries and employs more than 600,000 people around the globe. This multinational company expanded its reach to the United States in 1994 and has since become the leading foodservice supplier to restaurants, hospitals, arenas, corporate offices, museums, K-12 schools, and college campuses. With more than 3,000 different suppliers and tens of thousands of products, the task of managing all of the required documentation is a massive undertaking.
Jeff Mann, Director of Quality at Compass, says supplier management is an integral part of protecting the Compass brand, as well as their stakeholders. That’s why the company selected FoodLogiQ Connect’s Manage + Monitor to help them streamline their supplier management and to provide visibility into their supply chain.
“We had a very basic automated supplier management system that promised a wide variety of capabilities, but it didn’t deliver,” explains Mann. “It was very limited in the functions it allowed us to perform, and if we wanted to make changes, we had to ask the service provider to do it. That’s inefficient. We wanted an off-the-shelf system that was flexible enough for us to manage ourselves. FoodLogiQ had all the requirements to help us accomplish that goal.”
