Family-Owned, Organic Farm Chooses Industry Expert to Streamline Supplier Approval Program and Protect its 90+ Year Business from Risk
Salt Lake City, November 28, 2018 – ReposiTrak, Inc., the industry leader in compliance, food safety and risk management for the retail supply chain, announces Wholesum is deploying the ReposiTrak Compliance & Risk Management Solution to automate compliance documentation at corporate, facility and item levels.
Wholesum is committed to sustainably sourced certified organic produce, as well as fair-trade certified practices to empower their local communities. Based in Amado, Ariz., Wholesum operates three farms and partners with organic growers of tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant, squash and peppers at operations that span from California to Central Mexico.
“We already hold ourselves to the highest standard of organic, sustainably sourced and fair-trade practices; however, we needed to ensure we are fully compliant,” said Ricardo Crisantes, Chief Commercial Officer for Wholesum. “Food safety from the farm to the table is our top priority. We want to ensure we are protecting our consumers, our product and our brand. Working with ReposiTrak, which has the largest network of retailers and suppliers who trust them, combined with their easy-to-use solution, proved to be the best choice for our compliance management needs.”
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 300,000 buyer/supplier connections across the platform and endorsements of leading trade groups such as FMI, ROFDA and GMDC, ReposiTrak has established itself as the industry standard.
“Wholesum’s retail clients trust them to provide the best produce items while they in turn trust ReposiTrak to ensure their business is protected from risk,” said Randy Fields, Chairman and CEO of ReposiTrak. “By optimizing their supply chain, their supplier compliance program is automated to safeguard the business and ultimately the end consumers through better food management, so they can focus on growing their business.”
The ReposiTrak Speed Retail Platform drives growth and supports all supply and demand chain activities for retailers, manufacturers, and their trading partners, consisting of three product families; Compliance & Risk Management, Supply Chain Solutions, and MarketPlace Sourcing and B2B Commerce.
