How to Manage Your Suppliers Efficiently with Automated Workflows


From approval and on-boarding to audits and renewal, these five workflows empower effective supplier management and engagement for an optimized food safety program.

Supplier management is an integral component of any thorough, successful food safety plan.

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.

Good supplier management software should help improve this relationship and empower suppliers as they navigate key documents.

A Year Later: What We Learned About the 2018 Romaine Lettuce Recall


After retailers pulled romaine lettuce off shelves in the Fall of 2018, consumers were left wondering if leafy greens were safe to eat.

Nothing alarms consumers at the grocery store more than seeing row after row of empty shelves where produce used to be. This was the scene during the nation’s largest recall of romaine lettuce one year ago. Although consumers were repeatedly reassured by the FDA earlier this year that all the affected produce was removed from retail locations, some consumers still have underlying concerns about whether the lettuce is really safe to eat.
