FoodLogiQ Takes Main Stage at IFMA’s Chain Operators EXchange


Hundreds of food executives convened in New Orleans this week for IFMA’s Chain Operators EXchange (COEX), the industry’s only conference “created by operators, for operators.” With an agenda packed with content built by a committee of foodservice operator executives, the event showcased pertinent issues operators are facing today.

FoodLogiQ was featured on the main stage this year at COEX along with GS1 US and Ripe.io to discuss the current state of blockchain in foodservice. The session provided an overview of blockchain, addressed several of the common misperceptions about the evolving technology, as well as helped to better differentiate between blockchain and one of the potential use cases for blockchain - traceability.

Food Allergen Labeling: Getting it Right Through Supply Chain Transparency


It’s likely you know at least one American who has a food allergy. According to a recent study by the JAMA Network Open, one in ten US adults (10.8 percent) has a food allergy and far more (nearly 19 percent) believe they are food allergic. Previous statistics by the Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) estimates that 15 million Americans, including 5.9 million children under the age of 18, have food allergies. Proper allergen labeling is, therefore, a big issue in the food industry, as it protects the millions of people who have adverse reactions to certain food ingredients.

Tropical Smoothie Cafe & FoodLogiQ: Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

Hi, World.  It’s me again - Robbie, your ever-excited FoodLogiQ Customer Success Manager.  In my last blog post, I talked about what a successful business partnership looks like.  And today, I want to chat a bit about something that’s not altogether unrelated: teamwork!

Why teamwork? The answer is simple.  The ability to align on a common, measurable goal and work together to achieve that goal is, in my opinion, the glue that holds business partnerships together.  You see, in the world of software, there are several moving parts that need to align to make sure that a customer journey is successful, and if different players aren’t working together, then things can fall apart, and fast.
