Leverage the ReposiTrak® Solution in Two Ways

Not only can you share food safety documents downstream with wholesale and retail customers, you can also use ReposiTrak upstream with your suppliers to automate the management of all forms of documentation to improve compliance.

1.  A Customer Requests Your Enrollment

  • We’ll help you identify if you have the list of documents they require.
  • To ensure your insurance coverage meets the customer requirement minimums, our OCR (optical character recognition) program will read and determine if your minimums are in compliance.  If not, you’ll both get alerted.
  • You can store any business, facility or product-related documents.  You may even have documents you’d like to store that are not required by a specific customer.
  • Most importantly because we make it easy, you can connect to ReposiTrak once and service all of your retail and wholesale customers who are also concerned about managing their food safety compliance by reducing risk to their brands.

ReposiTrak® is a food safety compliance management solution that can help reduce brand, financial and regulatory risk and will benefit multiple areas within your company.

Enroll Your Supply Chain

2.  Enroll Your Own Supply Chain

  • First communicate with your suppliers.  We’ll help you share the message with your suppliers that food safety is important to you and that you are ensuring transparency throughout your supply chain.  Our team takes an active approach with your suppliers, sharing educational materials, making phone calls, sending emails and providing all the necessary TLC.
  • Then determine required documents and coverage minimums expected of your suppliers.   Your suppliers will upload and share required documents to become compliant and maintain compliance.  If they have questions or need help–we’re here to walk them through.
  • ReposiTrak will report ongoing food safety compliance.  We are your total food safety compliance management solution – incorporate ReposiTrak into your “new vendor” management process to ensure new purchase orders aren’t cut until the vendor passes compliance; and use ReposiTrak as a checkpoint for existing vendors to ensure they remain in compliance or don’t get paid.

“The tough reality today is that if you aren’t partnering with, assessing and validating every supplier all the way back to the farm; if you aren’t assessing and addressing risk of all the ingredients and products you purchase, process, or sell – instead of the companies being named in today’s headlines, tomorrow’s name on the foodborne-illness lawsuit could be yours.
