ITN Conference attendees discuss challenges and opportunities in tough economic times

This year’s ITN Global Supply Chain Conference held last month was well attended by leading food industry retailers, manufacturers, suppliers, distributors and foodservice operators who met to discuss ways to deal with the current economic crisis. Attendees learned how their peers are rising to the occasion and finding new ways to grow sales, improve supply chain quality, enforce compliance, streamline complex procurement processes and strengthen trading partner relationships.

ITN’s Approach to Product Traceability

In light of the recent peanut butter/paste contaminations, food safety and traceability are receiving even greater attention. As such, this was a hot topic of discussion at our recent ITN Global Supply Chain Conference. Participants reviewed the upcoming traceability milestones of the Produce Traceability Initiative and collaboratively discussed ways of addressing these milestones in the most efficient, cost effective manner possible. ITN has incorporated the forward and backward visibility necessary to achieve traceability in our solutions.
