Specifications for raw materials, ingredients, and packaging offer food, beverage, and other CPG companies control over the cost, quality, and safety of the goods they produce. Most importantly, raw material specs remain the most critical defense companies have against food fraud and adulteration. Vigorous specification prevents companies from buying or using fraudulent or even the wrong items. Creating and managing clear, detailed specifications also protects businesses from purchasing, processing, or selling fraudulent or out-of-spec materials.

Many companies in the food, supplement, and CPG industries tell us that maintaining accurate and up-to-date raw material specifications remain labor-intensive and time-consuming.
Specification Management allows food, beverage, and CPG companies to draft, maintain, and publish raw material and finished goods specifications in a single platform with automated version control and change management for a complete audit trail.
With networked specification management, companies have immediate access to more than a million supplier-provided documents to accelerate specification creation and updates. Choose which suppliers can access shared specifications, author or edit, review read-only sections, add comments, attach documents, negotiate attributes, and approve or decline specifications, with all correspondence and agreements tracked digitally.
