Is a software package the key to pain-free FSMA compliance?

Dive Brief:

  • The Fresh Market, which operates 177 stores in 24 states, has recently adopted ReposiTrak to help oversee its regulatory and business documentation compliance within the supply chain, according to a press release and Progressive Grocer.
  • ReposiTrak assists food retailers and suppliers in protecting their brands and keeps them in compliance with the regulations in the Food Safety Modernization Act. It also improves traceability as products and their ingredients move between trading partners.
  • The platform, powered by Park City Group’s technology, consists of compliance management and Track & Trace, which identifies product ingredients and their supply chain path in the event of a recall.

Dive Insight:

By utilizing the ReposiTrak platform, the Fresh Market is able to receive, store and share documentation, as well as manage compliance through dashboards and alerts for missing or expired documents.

Tools like this are in high demand in 2017 as manufacturers search for easy-to-use programs that can help them adapt to new FSMA regulations. There are numerous companies developing apps and other cloud-based solutions to help retailers remain in compliance with business records and regulatory requirements.

Karen Caplan, CEO of specialty produce company Frieda’s, is just one of the many testimonials praising the ReposiTrak platform. This sort of program may be a savvy investment for others in the food industry to ensure they are meeting all proper guidelines.
