The food and agriculture sector is faced with numerous challenges including food safety, quality, sustainability and social responsibility. Such issues can have a profound reputational impact your organization and your customers. Critical to any organization in managing these issues, is the ability to know how many suppliers you have, who your suppliers are, what your relationship is with them, where they are, how they perform and if they share your corporate values.
Mishandling of materials or natural disasters can negatively impact the business and delay operations if there is not a proper risk management program in place. It is important for the food and agriculture sectors to have complete visibility into what their primary producers, manufacturers, processors and transportation providers are doing to ensure the safety and well-being of their workers and consumers.
