SpartanNash Launches Food Traceability Program; Greg Molloy Comments

Thursday, February 1st, 2024

Food safety and traceability continue to remain top of mind for all industry operators. Increasing its efforts in those areas, SpartanNash recently launched the ReposiTrak Traceability Network®.

Greg Molloy, Vice President of Environmental Health and Safety, SpartanNash“From a food safety perspective, there is tremendous value in knowing exactly where each product and ingredient has been before it reaches our shelves and consumers,” said SpartanNash Vice President of Environmental Health and Safety Greg Molloy. “This technology enables us to collect and, more importantly, exchange this information for every affected shipment in a highly efficient manner. SpartanNash is proud to make investments such as these as part of our broader environmental, social, and governance (ESG) efforts.”

Now, through this program, hundreds of SpartanNash’s suppliers who harvest or handle products on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Food Traceability List are required to exchange traceability data with the company and the thousands of retailers it serves.
