The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), and other risk mitigation strategies compel manufacturers to collect and review reams of documentation from their suppliers. But the supplier qualification process for suppliers can be labor-intensive and inefficient, conducted with outdated tools such as email and spreadsheets. Unfortunately, techniques like these prevent adequate visibility into the performance of suppliers and their ingredients.
Making matters worse, backlogged suppliers that can be slow to respond to document requests. And once manufacturers receive those forms, employees often file them away, preventing the data from being mined for business insights such as risk profiling, trending, and other critical information.
