GARDENDALE, Ala. — The Retailer Owned Food Distributors & Associates (ROFDA) here, a cooperative of independent food wholesalers, announced it is adopting track-and-trace technology from ReposiTrak, owned jointly by international food safety consultant Leavitt Partners and retail technology provider Park City Group, Salt Lake City.
The ReposiTrak system, which includes document management and track & trace functions, is being deployed among the 14 ROFDA members, which include Unified Grocers; Associated Grocers, Baton Rouge; and Associated Food Stores.
Powered by Park City Group’s technology, ReposiTrak enables grocery warehouses, supermarkets, packaged goods manufacturers, food processing facilities, drug stores and drug manufacturers, as well as logistics partners, to track and trace products and components throughout the food, drug and dietary supplement supply chains.
In addition, the technology addresses the market need of receiving, storing, sharing, and maintaining regulatory documentation all in one location. ReposiTrak reduces risk in the supply chain by identifying backward sources and forward recipients of products in near real time.
“We selected the ReposiTrak solution for three reasons: the technology on which it is based is a proven, scalable platform; it is easy to use and inexpensive; and it is simple to implement because it is web-based and requires no hardware or software installation,” said Francis Cameron, president & chief executive officer of ROFDA, in a statement. “We see the ReposiTrak system becoming an industry standard for the retail supply chain, helping all trading partners meet the new federal food safety requirements, reducing unsalable products and keeping the end consumer healthy,”
