ROFDA Adopts Food Safety Solution for Coop Wholesalers
The Retailer Owned Food Distributors & Associates (ROFDA), a cooperative of independent food wholesalers, has deployed track and trace technology to enhance the safety of food and drugs throughout the supply chains of its 14 member wholesalers.
The group is using the Document Management and Track & Trace components of the ReposiTrak System from ReposiTrack, a solution provider backed by international food safety consultants Leavitt Partners and retail technology experts Park City Group.
“We selected the ReposiTrak solution for three reasons: the technology on which it is based is a proven, scalable platform; it is easy to use and inexpensive; and it is simple to implement because it is web-based and requires no hardware or software installation,” said Francis Cameron, president and CEO of ROFDA. “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.”
Powered by Park City Group’s technology, ReposiTrak enables grocery warehouses, supermarkets, packaged goods manufacturers, food processing facilities, drug stores and drug manufacturers, as well as logistics partners, to track and trace products and components throughout the food, drug and dietary supplement supply chains. In addition, the technology addresses the market need of receiving, storing, sharing and maintaining regulatory documentation all in one location. ReposiTrak reduces risk in the supply chain by identifying backward chaining sources and forward chaining recipients of products in near real time.
The mission of ROFDA is to promote and support the retailer-owned distribution segment of the food industry with value added programs and services, all in furtherance of servicing independent retail grocers in the U.S.
