Recalls happen a lot. While only a small fraction of these recalls make it to the media and the eyes and ears of consumers, the pervasiveness of recalls doesn’t mean they’re any less damaging. In fact, consumers are paying more attention than ever.

The average cost of a recall to a food company is around $10 million in direct costs not including brand damage and lost sales. The difference between a long, drawn-out, reputation-ruining recall and a quicker solution boils down to preparedness. As consumers continue to set a precedent for food companies to be more transparent companies need a centralized technology platform that enables faster execution and more targeted recall management across their supply chain.
