Quality assurance and compliance software specialist Muddy Boots has launched a product called Greenlight Supplier Approval that is a cloud-based collaborative tool that has been designed specifically for the food industry to help manage and simplify the whole supplier approval process. Greenlight enables businesses and their suppliers to easily access, record, search and share all of the important data relating to the approval status of a supplier, so they can all share the task of supplier compliance.
All of this information is held in a centralized, secure location, allowing businesses to map their supply chains from grower to retailer, providing deep visibility and clear transparency of who is in their supply network, where they are located and what products they are supplying to whom. All data is cross-referenced according to individual retailer audit requirements, giving businesses assurance that the produce meets the compliance protocol of the end customer.
"Incidents like the horsemeat scandal expose the complexities of our supply chains, and even though you may have confidence in your internal operations, it’s often your suppliers that make you vulnerable," said Muddy Boots' managing director Jonathan Evans. "Greenlight Supplier Approval offers a comprehensive but really easy way of managing your supplier compliance data; it puts you in control so you can have total confidence that your supply chain is always meeting the required standard. This means you’ll be able to spend more time with your suppliers on value-added tasks."
Greenlight Supplier Approval is part of the Greenlight network of solutions from Muddy Boots that manage all aspects of quality and compliance within the food vertical. To read more, click HERE.
