By CIOReview | Monday, March 9, 2015

FREMONT, CA: Central Grocers, also known as Centrella, the eighth member of Retailer Owned Food Distributors & Associates (ROFDA), has selected ReposiTrak – a provider of robust compliance management and tracking solutions for food retailers and suppliers – to manage its food safety-related risk.

 The ReposiTrak solution is easy to use, least expensive industry standard solution for food, drug and dietary supplement retailers, wholesalers and suppliers. It helps to manage regulatory, financial and brand risk associated with issues of food safety in the global food supply chain.

The ReposiTrak platform consists of two systems: Compliance Management System and Track and Trace System. The Compliance Management System helps in searching and sharing documents as well as receives notifications for missing, expired and inaccurate documents. The Track and Trace System identifies the supply chain path taken by a product in the unfortunate event of a product recall.  It can reduce the risk in the supply chain by identifying backward chaining sources and forward chaining recipients of products in near real time, reports Business Wire.

“The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) regulations will require us to both manage and store thousands of vendor documents. We chose the ReposiTrak solution for its automated review of our documents. The dashboards and alerts for missing, inaccurate, or expired documents will enable one person to manage the compliance of our FSMA required documentation,” says Ken Nemeth, President and CEO of Centrella.
