TraceGains Recognizes Restaurants as Food Manufacturers
Westminster, CO -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/20/2012 -- The restaurant business is a form of food manufacturing according to Colorado-based, TraceGains. Restaurants take in raw materials and ingredients, and turn out a consumable finished product. Food safety is always top of mind, but profit margins are razor thin. The supply chain is complex and dynamic.
Restaurant managers already know how to listen to customers and store managers. TraceGains allow restaurants to leverage store and customer feedback to identify individual suppliers or ingredients that are adding to (or detracting from) business, and in the process improve quality and reduce costs.
Supplier Compliance and Supplier Impact from TraceGains are online subscription services that allow restaurants to catch problems in the supply chain before served to customers, and then leverage the collected data for continuous product improvement without adding cost or complexity.
