A crucial link in the supply chain

 

The challenge of greater data

The demand for transparency and product-level data from wholesalers and distributors has risen significantly since the introduction of the Food Information Regulations (FIR) in 2014, particularly in the areas of food service and hospitality.

The wholesale and distribution industry cite vast numbers of requests for in-depth product data which must be obtained from supplying manufacturers. When considering the dynamic nature of food product specifications, which regularly see changes to ingredient listings, combined with the sheer scale of product ranges offered by your average wholesaler,  the task of managing this amount of data presents a daunting challenge.

 

Seamless flow of information

The Authenticate platform allows for uninterrupted transfer of critical product data from manufacturer to wholesaler/distributor and onwards to the ultimate consumer-facing customer. 

And the beauty of it? Thousands of brand product lines are already listed within the Authenticate platform, all of which can be accessed by the simple click of a button.

Authenticate eliminates the duplication of work, the endless completion of spreadsheets and the risk of data input error. The interoperability of the platform means that data can be electronically migrated into internal operating systems and other ERP systems, meaning that once added, all product-level data can be shared with any customer.

Don’t just take our word for it...
