Frontier Co-op: A Streamlined Supply Chain Enables Flexibility During COVID-19


Founded in 1976 and based in Norway, Iowa, Frontier Co-op is a cooperatively-owned wholesaler of natural and organic products under the Frontier Co-op, Simply Organic and Aura Cacia brands. With more than 25,000 member-owners and over 500 employees, they manufacture and distribute products throughout the United States and Canada.

“The complexity of products makes our supply chain a challenge,” says Greg Sommerville, Head of Supply Integrity representing Frontier Co-op. “We have more than 1,800 different ingredients and materials, including herbs and teas, spices, essential oils, and packaging. As an example of the complexity, one of our spice blends is sourced from 16 suppliers in nine different countries. Using FoodLogiQ Connect’s Manage + Monitor, we have an unmatched level of visibility into our suppliers and the associated documentation. That’s proven to be extremely valuable for regulatory compliance and quality assurance, especially during COVID-19.”
