US supermarket group collaborates with ReposiTrak to enhance supply chain

RBR Staff Writer Published 17 May 2013

US-based supermarket trade association Retailer Owned Food Distributors & Associates (ROFDA) has collaborated with food safety consultants ReposiTrak to use its track and trace technology.

Under the collaboration, the group has installed ReposiTrak system at its 14 ROFDA members enabling them to track and trace products across their respective supply chains.

The service system includes Document Management and Track & Trace, besides storing receiving, storing, sharing, and maintaining regulatory documentation at single location. It further reduces the supply chain risks as it notes backward chaining sources and
forward chaining recipients of products.

ROFDA president and CEO Francis Cameron stated that the group has opted for the solution looking at the factors including scalable technology, easy usage and inexpensiveness.

"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," added Cameron.

ReposiTrak is a joint venture between Leavitt Partners and Park City and backed by US Secretary of Health and Human Services and Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency.

Commenting on the alliance, ReposiTrak president Rich McKeown said: "We have 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."
