Under the agreement, ReposiTrak will be the exclusive solution provider endorsed by FMI in connection with the food and drug safety traceability of goods and related services, including document management.

“At FMI, we are working to help our members protect their customers and employees, meet all federal and state regulatory mandates, safeguard their brands and reduce financial risk,” said Hilary Thesmar, FMI vice president for food safety programs. “Traceability is increasingly important to everyone in the food industry and retail is no exception.”

She said the ReposiTrak system is appealing because it is interoperable with other systems retailers have in place, and it augments other FMI efforts such as Rapid Recall Exchange and Safe Quality Foods Institute. The system is “a proven, comprehensive and easy-to-implement solution that doesn’t require systems changes and is extremely cost effective,” she added.

ReposiTrak was created through collaboration between Park City Group, a software-as-service provider, and Leavitt Partners, a health care and food safety consultancy.
