Food & Beverage
Companies in the food and beverage sector often have long and complex supply chains, meaning that managing these and ensuring compliance throughout the supply base can be a difficult and time-consuming process. By the very nature of their business, food and beverage companies source ingredients, products and services from across the globe to ensure the best value and quality to customers. This can result in a substantial amount of administration, including paperwork, telephone calls and emails to suppliers to highlight and verify supply chain risks. Some of these compliance risks include allergens, modern slavery, anti-bribery, sustainability, nutrition, veganism, Halal and Kosher, as well as supplier manufacturing site accreditation and insurance.
Trade Interchange’s ARCUS® supplier management software enables innovation professionals within the food and drink sector to collect and verify large amounts of documentation and certifications to ensure that approved suppliers can deliver the services, ingredient or products requested, whilst complying with government legislation, industry guidelines and company policies at the best market value.
