A Roadmap to Safer Food and Market Access

Brand Owners Require a Single, Industry-Wide View of Supply-Chain Data

As consumers select fresh, prepared, and packaged groceries, some of the world’s most familiar brands are giving way to a growing preference for items that shoppers know to be from trusted sources, regardless of brand equity. Customers expect brand owners to not only know what is in each item; they expect the brand owner to know exactly when and where food ingredients originated.

Same Goal, New Path: Managing Food Safety in an International but Locally Focused Company Like Danone

Imagine being one of the world’s top food producers focusing on health-driven “categories”: Early Life Nutrition, Medical Nutrition, Water, and Dairy… Imagine that most of your products are community-relevant, tailored to the local culture and expectations of the 130 countries they’re distributed in… Imagine that for some of your customers – babies, patients with a medical condition – the food you produce can constitute 100% of their diet for at least a week… That’s the case for Danone. And that’s why food safety is the very foundation of our mission.
