Georgia Candy Maker and Gourmet Nut Purveyor Adopts Automated Compliance System
SALT LAKE CITY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ReposiTrak, Inc., the industry leader in compliance, food safety and risk management for the retail supply chain, announces The Orchards Gourmet Nuts, Candies and Gifts LLC has selected the ReposiTrak Compliance & Risk Management Solution to automate document compliance to address food safety regulations and support its food safety quality certification efforts.
Based in Wrens, Ga., The Orchards provides gourmet nuts, candies, confections, snacks and gifts to retailers and wholesalers. It also sells its products online and at a showroom store housed in its Wrens candy factory. The origin of the family-owned company dates to 1935 with a pecan business. In 2006, the company business expanded from shelling and growing pecans to include candy making. Around that time it also acquired Fran’s Gifts to Go and Harrell Farms mail order catalogs. It works with approximately 32 suppliers to produce its line of candies and confections.
The Orchards adopted ReposiTrak because the company needed an automated system for handling food safety government regulations and meeting Safe Quality Food (SQF) certification requirements. “As a small company constantly trying to do big things, we often find ourselves overwhelmed and understaffed with the growing demands and needs of the modern food industry, particularly in regard to the new FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act) regulations and our own desire to become an SQF certified company,” said Tim Dell, the onsite SQF practitioner for The Orchards. “After attending a Safe Quality Food Institute (SQFI) sponsored webinar, we at The Orchards have chosen ReposiTrak because we believe it offers an affordable and viable solution to meeting those demands and needs.”
The Compliance & Risk Management suite includes food safety and compliance solutions that are a respected and trusted cornerstone of the ReposiTrak brand. With 90,000 buyer/supplier connections across the platform and endorsements from leading trade groups such as FMI, ROFDA and GMDC, ReposiTrak has established itself as the industry standard for a compliance and risk management platform.
“Because ReposiTrak combines automation with a customer success team, we’ll save Orchards hours of time in document collection for supplier compliance,” said Randy Fields, Chairman and CEO of ReposiTrak. “Our technology will also assist them with the records management The Orchards needs for SQF certification.”
The ReposiTrak Speed Retail Platform drives growth and supports all supply and demand chain activities for retailers, manufacturers and their trading partners, consisting of three product families; Compliance & Risk Management, Supply Chain Solutions and MarketPlace Sourcing and B2B Commerce. Delivered via one technology platform, all the applications are mutually reinforcing and work synergistically to create value and positive impact across the entire enterprise.
