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 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 ESG policies, allergens, modern slavery, anti-bribery, nutrition, veganism, Halal and Kosher, as well as supplier manufacturing site accreditation and insurance.
Trade Interchange’s ARCUS® supplier management software enables sustainability 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, ingredients or products requested, whilst complying with government legislation, industry guidelines and company policies at the best market value.

Whitbread PLC is the UK’s largest hospitality company, owning Premier Inn as well as Beefeater, Brewers Fayre, Table Table and Bar+Block.
Its “Force for Good” sustainability program aims to ensure that Whitbread has a positive impact on all of its stakeholders and the world around them, and has set long-term strategic targets to try and achieve this. This includes collaborating with its global supply base to support efforts against climate change to ensure that every supplier adheres to its robust policies on sustainability and responsible sourcing.
Whitbread extended its use of ARCUS® Supplier Information Management (SIM) to automate, digitise, and streamline its supplier on-boarding.
Configurable questionnaires are sent to and completed by suppliers to ensure that Whitbread is collecting all the supply base sustainability information they require, and this replaced a separate standalone system.
