iTradeNetwork Announces New Module within its Order Management Suite
DUBLIN, CA - This month, iTradeNetwork—provider of on-demand supply chain and intelligence solutions for the food and beverage industry—introduced a new feature to streamline compliance with with the Safe Food for Canadians Act (SFCA).
The company’s latest module—to be featured in its flagship Order Management Suite (OMS)—will offer iTrade's clientele a number of tools to easily embrace the latest food safety legislation from the North.
“It allows retailers to have control of where specific items may be shipped from per vendor,” said OMS Project Manager, Christian Freeman, in a press release. “It allows the retailer to have better visibility from where items are shipped, and if an approved shipping warehouse migrates to a new region, it enforces the retailer to inspect the new location prior to approval on future purchase orders.”
According to that press release, The Safe Food for Canadians Act focuses on the following important areas:
- Improved food safety oversight to better protect consumers
- Streamlined and strengthened legislative authorities
- Enhanced international market opportunities for Canadian industry
The company’s SFCA module will help safeguard the Canadian food supply chain by ensuring that products are shipped only from authorized shipping locations—from locations like warehouses and packhouses, where adequate documentation and safety protocols are in place. The SFCA module is designed to tackle all the SFCA’s key concerns by specifically strengthening traceability functionality within OMS and improving import controls.
iTrade’s latest launch is taking off in October and will debut with one of Canada’s leading grocery retailers: Loblaw Companies Limited.
