Supermarket group selects ReposiTrak's food safety solution

FBR Staff Writer Published 17 May 2013

The Retailer Owned Food Distributors & Associates (ROFDA), a leading cooperative of independent food wholesalers in the US, has selected track and trace technology from ReposiTrak, as part of its plan to strengthen food safety.

The ReposiTrak system, which includes Document Management and Track & Trace, is being successfully deployed among the 14 ROFDA members.

ReposiTrak, a solution provider backed by international food safety consultants Leavitt Partners and retail technology experts Park City Group.

ROFDA president and CEO Francis Cameron said the company has selected ReposiTrak solution for three reasons: it is a proven scalable platform; it is easy to use and inexpensive; and it is simple to implement because it is web-based and requires no hardware or software installation.

"We see the ReposiTrak system becoming an industry standard for the retail supply chain, helping all trading partners meet the new federal food safety requirements, reducing unsalable products and keeping the end consumer healthy," Cameron added.

Supported by Park City Group's technology, ReposiTrak enables grocery warehouses, supermarkets, packaged goods manufacturers, food processing facilities, drug stores and drug manufacturers, as well as logistics partners, to track and trace products and components across the food, drug and dietary supplement supply chains.

The technology also addresses the market need of receiving, storing, sharing, and maintaining regulatory documentation all in one convenient location. ReposiTrak lowers risk in the supply chain by identifying backward chaining sources and forward chaining recipients of products in near real time.

ReposiTrak president Rich McKeown said that the company has jointly implemented a solution that is exactly what the member distribution companies need to meet government regulations, maintain supplier insurance and inspection documentation, and keep the consumers safe.
