TraceGains and the United Natural Products Alliance (UNPA) are proud to announce a strategic partnership designed to increase quality and transparency in the global supply chain.

TraceGains is an advanced network platform that allows companies to automate and streamline their processes through instant information sharing and collaboration throughout the supply chain. In addition to facilitating compliance documentation, companies using TraceGains can access a directory of suppliers and ingredients that includes more than 30,000 suppliers locations in more than 100 countries, more than 250,000 ingredients, and a library of more than 1.5 million discoverable documents.

“We have an increasingly complex supply chain and regulatory landscape,” UNPA president Loren Israelsen said. “Both domestic and foreign suppliers are often not equipped to meet the new Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) record-keeping requirements. The industry as a whole is suffering from certifier audit fatigue. UNPA chose to partner with TraceGains because the supply chain transparency its software provides is in alignment with UNPA’s long-standing mission to help industry provide consumers with natural health products of superior quality, benefit, reliability, and sustainability.”

“Supplement companies are struggling to stay on top of the growing mountain of regulatory documentation required to ensure product safety,” TraceGains CEO Gary Nowacki said. “It’s also time-consuming and difficult for manufacturers to find compliant suppliers and key ingredients. We recognized these challenges and built an advanced network platform that’s revolutionizing information exchange between buyers and sellers. We’re pleased to partner with UNPA to ensure more businesses can join us to transform the supply chain.”

TraceGains and UNPA jointly conduct educational programs to address industry pain points, such as FSMA, new product development, and audit readiness. Additionally, the UNPA-TraceGains alliance works collaboratively to develop and promote industry best practices around raw ingredient sourcing to boost supply chain trust and transparency.
