ReposiTrak’s Traceability Network expands
ReposiTrak, operating the world’s largest food supply chain network of retailers, wholesalers and suppliers, has hit another milestone following the launch of its ReposiTrak Traceability Network.
Designed to automate the creation and exchange of food traceability records in compliance with the Food and Drug Administration Food Safety Modernization Act 204 law, the ReposiTrak Traceability Network now includes more than 400 connections between supplier and retail facilities for more than 1,500 stock-keeping units (SKUs).
“Others are talking about traceability, but the retailers, wholesalers and suppliers who are part of the ReposiTrak Traceability Network are already doing it,” Randy Fields, ReposiTrak chairman and CEO, said in a news release. “This milestone proves that it is possible to do food traceability and to meet the requirements of the FSMA 204 law and we’re looking forward to getting more food supply chain operators onboard.”
The FSMA 204 food traceability law requires the tracking of each impacted SKU at the facility level. Data must be exchanged each time the product changes hands or changes form. Other food traceability solutions require the use of additional labeling and scanning steps, or the use of outdated data capture methods that fail to assemble key data elements according to the FDA’s requirement. The ReposiTrak Traceability Network does not require new hardware or software and has been backed by the industry as the low-cost, easiest-to-adopt solution for FSMA 204 compliance, according to the release.
