New data from a traceability pilot with a major industry buyer shows that iTrade Traceability customers increased their trading volumes on average by 55 percent, within 12 months – with some suppliers increasing volume by as much as 300 percent.
The iTrade data analytics team also studied the incremental value for new growers joining the same global buyer’s supplier base and utilizing Transit. A sample of just four new growers added a combined $10 million in revenue over the same period. All of this growth comes from our iTracefresh solution, which we are currently offering for FREE for one year to any supplier. No hidden fees, no start-up fees.
“iTrade made it easy for us to comply [to traceability mandates] quickly . . . It improved our supplier/buyer relationship, and provided us with a trackable food safety halo. Traceability has become more than simply a compliance need; it’s a differentiator that helps us grow our business.”
—David Bell, CMO at Houweling’s Group
In response to increasing regulatory, consumer, and industry pressure for food safety, iTrade built the Transit solution from the ground up, and integrated it into the iTrade platform. The user interface is custom designed for simplicity with maximum real-time visibility. Suitable for growers of all sizes, it is a one-stop solution to help comply with more stringent traceability requirements for leafy greens and other produce.
