California Grocery Store Chain Chooses Industry Leaders in Compliance Management to Better Enforce Supplier Compliance and Protect the Business from Proposition 65 Risk
Salt Lake City | August 1, 2018 –ReposiTrak, Inc., the industry leader in compliance, food safety and risk management for the retail supply chain, announces Gelson’s Markets is deploying the ReposiTrak Compliance & Risk Management Solution. The move will completely automate compliance documentation at corporate and facility levels, and streamline the retailer’s supplier compliance program to eliminate laborious and time-consuming paperwork. Additionally, because the grocery chain operates entirely in California, ReposiTrak will help Gelson’s Markets protect its business from the risk of incurring penalties from Proposition 65, which requires products containing any of hundreds of ingredients that could cause cancer to include a warning label on its packaging.
Since 1951, Gelson’s has been a prominent upscale regional supermarket chain, growing from one to 26 stores across the California market, carrying a variety of grocery and specialty items to meet increasing demands from its customers.
“We needed a way to ensure that we’re prepared to fully comply with the new Prop 65 requirements as well as validate that our suppliers are meeting our food safety and quality compliance requirements. We see great value in ReposiTrak, which works with many California retailers and suppliers to safeguard against Prop 65 exposure, and combined with their easy-to-use, market leading solution, made them the clear choice for our compliance management needs,” said Hee-Sook Nelson, Vice President, Team Development and Public Affairs for Gelson’s Markets. “Food safety compliance is a top priority at Gelson’s Markets. We strive to protect our brand and, more importantly, protect our consumers.”
The Compliance & Risk Management suite includes the food safety and compliance solutions that have become a respected and trusted cornerstone of the ReposiTrak brand. With more than 250,000 connection points in the supply chain and endorsements of leading trade groups such as FMI, ROFDA and GMDC, ReposiTrak is the clear industry standard for food safety and compliance management.
“We’re proud to help Gelson’s Markets protect its business from Prop 65 risk and automate their supplier compliance program,” said Randy Fields, Chairman and CEO of ReposiTrak. “Our innovative solution is designed to not only safeguard businesses from brand, financial and regulatory risk, but to also keep consumers safe through better food management and compliance technologies. In doing so, we provide companies with a better way to optimize their supply chains and focus on growing their businesses.”
