HarvestMark, a division of Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB), and iFoodDecisionSciences Inc are partnering to deliver an integrated supply chain solution for food safety, traceability and quality management.
As part of the collaboration, HarvestMark and iFood worked together to develop an integrated product offering that enables compatibility between their Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions. HarvestMark’s traceability and quality inspection information is now integrated with iFood safety data to create a comprehensive supply chain management platform that can significantly benefit US produce and perishable retailers, distributors, food service companies and food producers.
The combined solutions can help manage day-to-day food safety and quality control risks, regardless of where they occur. Together, the solutions can provide greater transparency, quality and safety, creating opportunities to provide meaningful analysis of food from the farm to the fork.
“Both companies have a demonstrated track record of simplifying the burdensome task of collecting and documenting process control data required today in the food industry. Now we are taking our work to the next level by providing real-time visibility throughout the supply chain,” said Diane Wetherington, CEO of iFoodDecisionSciences. “Our decision to work together is driven by an effort to enable customers to minimize their supply chain risks and let them focus on the business of growing and selling food.”
“We’re excited to work closely with iFood because it continues to solidify our combined services to the industry,” said Dan Sun, general manager of HarvestMark. “In the food supply chain, it’s important to not only provide real-time data that grower shippers, distributors and retailers can use to make informed decisions and process improvements, but to also provide that data in an integrated and easy-to-use platform.”
