If a problem does occur this unique solution can minimize the brand damage by using patented recall trace-back and track-forward technologies. A recall alert can be initiated within minutes, reducing potentially bad news to one news cycle, and saving customers millions of dollars in long-term brand rehabilitation costs. The Recall Detective analyzes critical risk factors, going beyond material movement tracking; the Recall Minimizer provides instant multiple scenarios for reduced brand damage.
The NW Food Manufacturing & Packaging Convention & Exposition will be held January 19 – 21, 2009 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon. The Convention & Expo is held annually in Portland and attracts almost 4,000 food processing industry professionals from across the country. In addition to featuring over 450 exhibitor booths, the event offers industry-relevant education sessions with information and interesting speakers to encourage a broad-based attendance by food processor company personnel.
Food processing industry professionals from the region, the United States and around the world attend this Expo. The event attracts a full range of industry professionals, from CEOs, plant managers, purchasing managers, production and quality assurance managers, to the mechanics on the production floor. They come to attend sessions and to see and learn about the latest technology, systems and related information that can improve their operations. They also attend to gain valuable ideas and insights from first-hand contact with representatives from the world’s leading equipment and services producers.
By correlating and analyzing previously disparate data sets in the value chain, only TraceGains makes it possible to connect upstream inputs, suppliers, and raw materials to downstream outcomes such product quality or customer satisfaction. Firms can coach or replace poorly performing suppliers and counteract profit-draining events within the enterprise, as well perpetuate positive practices internally and throughout the supply chain, to achieve complete profit optimization.
According to Gary Nowacki, CEO of TraceGains, “Stuff happens. No matter how well HACCP, GMP, GAP or other systems work. Our solution continuously monitors all critical supply chain risk points, both within and outside the four walls of an enterprise. The system alerts busy managers to high-risk potential problems on an exception basis, so they can take action on the most critical and preventable problems before they are received for processing or shipped to customers. We are proud to be attending the 2009 NW Food Manufacturing & Packaging Convention & Exposition.”
