Food Allergen Labeling: Getting it Right Through Supply Chain Transparency


It’s likely you know at least one American who has a food allergy.

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.

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.
