Transparency is now at the heart of many food manufacturers product claims. Driven by consumer requirements, ever growing regulation, assurance audit needs, government buying standards and customer standards, the ability to demonstrate supplier transparency is now part of normal trading practice.

Demonstrating transparency is a vital marketing tool for the 21st Century food manufacturer. Since the horse meat scandal of 2013, there have been ever-growing demands of food manufacturers to prove reliable, safe supply and responsible sourcing. Having gaps in knowledge of your own suppliers opens manufacturers to significant operational risk, whether it be from fraud, adulterated ingredients or other malpractices.

The Authenticate Platform delivers a cost-effective means of meeting all those customer demands, satisfying all auditing requirements and serving as a highly persuasive tool when promoting products to potential new customers.

Working closely with the Authenticate client management team, you can map all your products back to source, manage your own supplier assessments, conduct internal and external audits and effectively ‘outsource’ one of the most time-consuming operational requirements, turning potential operational risk into a valuable resource.

Don’t just take our word for it...
