Companies Struggle to Manage Supply Chain Risk

Food and CPG companies have unique challenges:

  • Globalization of ingredient sourcing has made it harder to identify bad actors and assure supply chain safety, quality, and traceability.
  • Economic adulteration, fraud, and incidents like pesticides and heavy metals can occur without warning causing delays and hefty penalties.
  • Manually reviewing multiple sources for regulatory status and issues is slow and allows problems to go undetected.
  • Cross-checking alerts against individual suppliers, supplier locations, and ingredient categories requires inside knowledge or significant time.
  • Compliance with FSMA forces buyers to continuously monitor suppliers and ingredients for risk, while also tracking reported events throughout the supply chain.

Smart Alerts Can Fix It

TraceGains Smart Alerts is the best source for food and CPG regulatory, safety, incident, and fraud information. A comprehensive taxonomy integrates hundreds of data sources to deliver precise sourcing fast. Research by commodity, country of origin, threat type, supplier, date of event, and more.
