Food & Beverage Supplier Quality Management

Improve Quality and Safety Across the Supply Chain

The need to globalize to meet growing customer demand, coupled with increasing merger and acquisition activity, make it challenging for F&B companies to manage the quality of ingredients and materials across the supply chain.  Regulations like the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), are compelling companies to have supplier and importer quality management procedures in place. As a result, these organizations are looking for ways to create greater transparency into their suppliers’ and contract vendors’ operations and quality processes to ensure that products meet safety and quality requirements.

Creating Transparency Across the Supply Chain

Supplier quality management (SQM) helps companies ensure that suppliers and contract manufacturers are implementing the same best practices for product quality, safety, and compliance. Quality management system (QMS) software provides a centralized and consolidated system that facilitates effective SQM, reducing the time it takes to address complaints, investigations, and corrective actions.
