The food marketplace is undergoing massive changes. From how food is sourced, delivered and prepared, to the ingredients used and their provenance, the modern food consumer is demanding more information about their food choices, so they can personalize their eating experiences, a model that will align the food industry with other consumer sectors.
The key then, to surviving and thriving in this brave new world of consumer demand, is an absolute lock on your supply chain – being able to verify the authenticity and origin of your raw materials and ingredients, and to effectively, quickly and accurately track and trace your products as they move across a global network of growers & shippers, distributors and manufacturers, and retail outlets both virtual and in-person.
Getting the right data about your product’s disposition is the driver behind informed decision making that will allow tomorrow’s winners to accurately and effectively leverage just-in-time inventory, satisfy disparate regulatory and customer demands for transparency and verification, and drive targeted consumer engagement through mobile, IoT and blockchain applications and more.

Global governments require organizations in the food industry to comply with its preventive control standards by providing oversight of food safety compliance, ensuring compliance with its requirements, and intervening when problems or issues emerge. Since the early 2000s governments have reiterated the importance of food safety and are creating proactive approaches to reduce food safety issues in the supply chain. Today, there is a high responsibility to establish and implement effective food safety systems. With food safety compliance requirements global governments are shifting the focus from responding to contamination to preventing it.
