Food safety remains an invaluable part of brand trust and loyalty, and in order to ensure its products are protected, Hempler Foods Group has enlisted the ReposiTrak Compliance Management Solution. Through the automated system, the company and its suppliers will be able to meet all specifications for ingredients, packaging, and services while reducing risk to enhance operational controls and increase sales.
“The safety and quality of our foods directly depends on the ingredients we use,” said Hempler Quality Assurance Manager Andy Melius. “The ReposiTrak platform helps us to identify suppliers that fail to meet our high standards for documentation compliance and allows us to open up consideration to more reliable suppliers.”
Prior to choosing ReposiTrak’s cutting-edge Compliance Management, Hempler found it challenging to organize and maintain the required documentation for its ingredients suppliers, a press release noted. Through the use of this solution, there has been a dramatic improvement in communication.
ReposiTrak utilizes advanced Optical Character Recognition and Artificial Intelligence technologies to automate the collection and management of supplier compliance documents and certifications. Through the system, when documents are flagged as missing or outdated, ReposiTrak’s Customer Success Team will contact suppliers directly to make corrections.
“When you’re dealing with dozens of documents from hundreds of vendors, it’s easy to lose track of missing or expired documents. Right now, much of that work at companies like Hempler Foods is done manually by people who are qualified to do much more,” said ReposiTrak Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Randy Fields. “The goal is to automate compliance and enable those people to stop spending their invaluable time chasing down suppliers.”
Hempler and its suppliers are now part of ReposiTrak’s network that includes more than 110,000 facility connections that share documents and data to improve supply chain safety and increase product transparency.
