Buyers and Sellers Struggle To Connect and Collaborate Slowing Down Time To Market

Food, beverage, and supplement companies have unique challenges:

  • Today’s legacy tools – spreadsheets, ERP, CRM, PLM, etc. – don’t help manufacturers and brand owners connect with suppliers.
  • Custom portals fail to speed up regulatory compliance and New Product Development (NPD); in fact, they slow it down.
  • Organic, vegan, non-GMO, gluten-free, etc. are now table stakes marketing claims, rather than points of differentiation.
  • Suppliers are buried in customer requests, often submitting redundant details in different formats.
  • Customers are sourcing more ingredients off shore, increasing supply chain complexity and making information gathering even harder.

TraceGains Network Can Fix It

TraceGains Network is the collaborative platform where food, beverage, and dietary supplement professionals in R&D, procurement, quality, and regulatory departments work with suppliers globally to safely bring new products to market faster.

Accessed through a suite of SaaS-based TraceGains products, companies can leverage these solutions to connect with existing or new supply chain partners. Making connections is as easy as adding friends on a social network.
