Food Logistics, the only publication dedicated exclusively to the food and beverage supply chain, this week announced the ninth annual FL100 list, which will appear in the November/December 2012 issue.
Each year, the editors of Food Logistics recognize 100 software and technology providers that help food and beverage manufacturers, foodservice distributors, and grocery retailers attain their business goals. The FL100 is comprised of software providers as well as equipment and technology companies whose products and services play a significant role in food and beverage supply chains.
“With the evolution of the food supply chain, software and technology providers are playing a more critical role in addressing needs such as end-to-end visibility and collaboration, traceability, regulatory compliance, risk management, sustainability, and cost containment,” notes Lara L. Sowinski, editor-in-chief of Food Logistics. “Technology is the competitive differentiator for companies in our industry who need to stay ahead of dynamic changes in the marketplace.”
After receiving applications from end users and software and technology providers, the editorial staff reviewed over 165 submissions to compile this year’s list. Companies who earned a spot on the FL100 list are featured in the November/December 2012 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at www.foodlogistics.com.
The FL100 is not a ranking. The alphabetical list has been designed to help the readers of Food Logistics identify the leading software and technology providers in the food and beverage industry.
