In late 2017, TraceGains announced a groundbreaking strategic partnership between with ESHA Research.
ESHA Research is the leading provider of food formulation and labeling compliance software, commonly known as Genesis R&D®.
The two organizations allied ahead of the Food and Drug Administration’s proposed changes to Nutrition Facts labels, anticipating increased demand for a more streamlined process for gathering and updating supplier ingredient data. With the ESHA-TraceGains automated interface, users can import their supplier data directly from TraceGains into ESHA’s Genesis R&D software.
ESHA has developed a new workflow tool for Genesis R&D, DataLink, which calls ingredient data from the TraceGains Supplier portal and imports the data into the Genesis R&D database. DataLink allows for shared customers to update supplier ingredient data without having to enter nutrient amounts manually.
With the DataLink application, anytime an update is made to a supplier ingredient in TraceGains, users will be able to review a side-by-side comparison of the nutrient data and import the updated information directly into the Genesis R&D database. If users find no matching items, they can create a new ingredient in the database.
“Food manufacturers need easier ways to manage supplier ingredient information across all platforms,” ESHA Research CEO Craig Bennett explained. “Together, ESHA and TraceGains will provide our shared customers with a simplified solution for updating supplier ingredient data without manually entering supplier ingredients.”
“We believe that, together, ESHA and TraceGains will finally offer the complete solution that food, beverage, and CPG companies have been looking for,” TraceGains CEO Gary Nowacki added during the partnership announcement. “Faced with ever-changing nutritional labeling challenges driven by regulations, consumers, and product innovation to fuel growth, ESHA and TraceGains customers will now have a ready solution for a rapid market response.”
ESHA Research, founded in 1981, offers a variety of nutritional analysis and label development solutions to ensure regulatory compliance. Also, ESHA Research offers software and regulatory compliance consulting and label-generation services.
