iTradeNetwork offers its newly-enhanced iTracefresh Traceability Suite software to over 2,000 growers and shippers, free-of-charge. The first 40 to sign up will receive an exclusive start-up package inclusive of hardware to easily run the software.
The iTracefresh Traceability Suite aims to reduce food-borne illnesses, recalls and food waste by giving participants complete transparency into every step of a product's journey. With mobile-app capabilities, the tool allows growers and shippers to trace products from field to fork, automate and speed up receiving, and improve shelf life and quality while simplifying substitutions to increase efficiency within the supply chain.
"We need to take steps to minimize the harmful effects of recalls for all parties - consumers, growers, retailers, and the industry as a whole," said Rhonda Bassett-Spiers, CEO of iTradeNetwork. "By offering a year traceability solutions for free, iTrade will foster greater supply chain visibility, optimize product receiving, improve product shelf life and quality, enable more efficient recalls, boost brand loyalty, and ultimately usher in a supply chain we can all trust."
All growers and shippers to sign up for this unprecedented offer will receive one year of access to two of iTrade’s programs – Label, a PTI solution, and Transit Mobile, a PTI-Palletized Advance Ship Notice solution. Additionally, the first 40 to sign up will be given an exclusive hardware start-up package inclusive of two mobile devices for convenience on the field, a printer and field kit to make set up quick and simple.
"Since iTradeNetwork’s founding, we’ve built the industry's largest network of retailers, distributors, grower/shippers, food manufacturers, operators, and logistics providers," says Dale Slaughenhaupt, CTO of iTradeNetwork, "This wide reach puts us in a very unique position to take meaningful strides toward industry-wide traceability to create the world's safest, most transparent food supply chain.”
