ROFDA Member Wholesaler Deploys Food Safety Solution
A southwestern grocery wholesaler has become the first member of the Retailer Owned Food Distributors & Associates (ROFDA) to begin the on-boarding process with ReposiTrak, a food safety solution backed by international food safety consultants Leavitt Partners and Park City Group.
ROFDA, a cooperative of independent food wholesalers, deployed Repositrak’s track and trace technology last month to enhance the safety of food and drugs throughout the supply chains of its 14 member wholesalers.
“The successful implementation of ReposiTrak by the first ROFDA member strengthens ROFDA’s commitment to providing safe food throughout its supply chain,” said Rich McKeown, president of ReposiTrak.
Powered by Park City Group’s technology, ReposiTrak was developed to enable grocery warehouses, supermarkets, packaged goods manufacturers, food processing facilities, drug stores and drug manufacturers, and their 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 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, according to the company.
Glendale, Ala.-based ROFDA is a trade association established in 1962 to promote and support the retailer-owned distribution segment of the food industry. Its 14 members represent 20 percent of the supermarket industry and nearly 50,000 suppliers.
