Central Grocers, Inc. Adopts ReposiTrak®, the Industry Standard Food Safety Platform
ReposiTrak, the leading provider of Compliance Management and Track & Trace solutions for food safety exclusively endorsed by FMI and ROFDA, announces that the eighth member of ROFDA (Retailer Owned Food Distributors & Associates), Central Grocers, Inc. also known as Centrella, has chosen ReposiTrak® to manage its food safety-related risk.
“The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) regulations will require us to both manage and store thousands of vendor documents,” said Ken Nemeth, President and CEO of Centrella. “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.”
Powered by Park City Group’s technology, the ReposiTrak platform helps manage regulatory, financial and brand risk associated with issues of food safety in the global food supply chain. The platform consists of two systems. The Compliance Management system not only receives, stores and shares documentation, but also manages compliance through dashboards and alerts for missing, expired or inaccurate documents. The Track & Trace system quickly 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.
“Similar to Sarbanes-Oxley, more and more executives are now realizing they are personally responsible for their supply chain’s compliance with FSMA, which begins finalization in August and October of this year,” said Randall K. Fields, Chairman and CEO of Park City Group. “Continued member adoption of the ReposiTrak system further supports ROFDA’s commitment to manage risk out of the food supply chain.”
