Westminster, CO -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/14/2014 -- TraceGains, a leader in supplier document management in the food industry, was featured in Food Logistics magazine. A survey of food manufacturers found companies justified expanding technology solutions required integration of ERP data. From the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), with elements still being finalized three years following the enactment of the law, to BRC to ISO2200, these food manufacturing firms identified that exponentially expanding SKUs, thinner margins, and supply chain complexities, were among the named factors driving the need for new technology solutions.
Nearly 9 out of 10 respondents (88%) said current technology will be insufficient to address the food safety, food quality, regulatory compliance, and supply chain complexities. Most (81%) also noted that the increase in global suppliers exacerbated the challenges of meeting GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative) standards.”
