From deep supply chain mapping of high risk products from around the globe to monitoring monthly animal welfare KPIs on upland farms, Authenticate is widely used by the retail sector.

With the modern consumer becoming ever more concerned with provenance, ethical standards, animal welfare, sustainability and Modern Slavery issues, a knowledge of just immediate suppliers is no longer enough. Brand protection, reliable source of goods, and driving efficiency is at the heart of every Technical Manager’s decision making process.

The Platform is driving change in the way Technical Managers work with their suppliers by offering a cost-effective, collaborative approach, offering a cohesive way to manage the ever-growing burden of compliance data.

Authenticate is helping to deliver a new way of sourcing, managing and analysing data using technology, ending the inefficient, costly and disconnected methods of the past.

“Coop is the Uk’s largest consumer co-operative and the fastest growing convenience retailer in the UK. In 2017, Coop announced it will only source 100% fresh British meat for its own-brand and in 2018, all its own brand frozen products will only use 100% British meat. Authenticate has worked with Coop since 2013, providing its Agri supplier platform to manage animal welfare measures and other key metrics. This includes all British beef, pork, lamb, poultry and eggs"
