Authenticate celebrates 75,000th product
Authenticate Information Service (IS), a food supply chain data and software firm that provides a platform for food chain transparency, has mapped its 75,000th product. In addition, it is now working with more than 4,000 food businesses in 69 countries.
Over the last two years, Authenticate IS has worked with businesses from across the supply chain, including farmers, raw materials processors, food manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers, to collate and share transparency information on its cloud-based platform, which provides information on the complete product journey from its place of origin right through to the consumer.
The platform was developed by experts with direct experience of working in the food industry and has been developed to allow the food industry to demonstrate total transparency, as well as giving them the capability of mapping and managing data flow throughout the entire supply chain.
Now used by some of the UK’s leading supermarkets, Authenticate IS has gained momentum in recent months by adding tens of thousands of products.
“With our deep understanding of the food industry and the challenges of supply chain mapping, we have been able to develop a unique and easy-to-use software solution, designed to enable food companies to demonstrate product integrity and deal with issues around food provenance,” explained Paul Marples, chief executive of Authenticate IS.
“Increasingly, retailers and regulatory bodies are requiring food manufacturers to provide detailed records of all components within their processes, with customer protocols usually including time-consuming risk assessment questionnaires and unannounced audits,” he added.
“By moving their compliance procedure to Authenticate IS, food companies now have all of the product information they need at their fingertips. They can easily track every ingredient via a dynamic digital system, which maps risk areas and provides real-time information, so assuring compliance, reducing risk and streamlining product authentication.”
Instead of simply looking at direct suppliers, Authenticate IS claims to be the only platform that provides a single, integrated, collaborative network that gives complete traceability throughout the supply chain, offering traceability of every single product component.
“With all their product data, from internal audits and order notes to safety certificates and accreditations, housed on a single platform, our clients can in turn give access to their customers, so exceeding their compliance requirements and providing full transparency for the future,” concluded Marples.
