Specialty grocer stocks up on supply chain compliance


Bristol Farms, a 13-store specialty grocery chain, is making food safety a priority.

The Carson, California-based retailer has selected technology from ReposiTrak Inc. to manage regulatory and business documentation compliance within its supply chain.

Powered by technology from parent company Park City Group, the ReposiTrak platform consists of two systems: Compliance Management, which receives, stores and shares documentation and manages compliance through dashboards and alerts for missing or expired documents; and Track & Trace, which identifies product ingredients and their supply chain path in the event of a product recall.

“Our top priority is to provide safe food for our customers at Bristol Farms,” said Kevin Davis, chairman, president and CEO of Bristol Farms. “As our industry continues to focus on bringing consumers more and better locally-sourced products, we needed an automated system to help us manage the complexity associated with the Food Safety Modernization Act. Repositrak gives us that ability.”

High-profile product recalls in recent years have resulted in brand damage, lawsuits, and even prison terms for executives of companies involved. While the source brands typically face more regulatory and legal ramifications, it is still wise for retailers of produce and other food items to invest in technologies that help prevent or minimize the impact of selling unsafe products.
