Gain Control of your Supply Chain – Assist
A Supplier Approval Process is an essential element for any businesses looking to gain control over the quality of their product. Whether you’re a wholesaler, retailer, or an agent or broker, it is increasingly important to have traceability of a product throughout the whole supply chain. A product can be passed through numerous businesses before reaching the end user. Large retailers require a clear view of the safety management systems in place that maintain the quality of that product through all suppliers.
It has increasingly become a requirement for manufacturers to comply with retailers Supplier Approval Management by providing evidence of a food safety management system.

• Manage risk
