Tyson Foods Selects FoodLogiQ to Connect Supply Chain
Leading protein-focused food company will leverage Trustwell’s supplier management and reporting solution, FoodLogiQ Compliance.
Trustwell, the leading SaaS provider of food safety compliance, whole chain traceability, and supply chain transparency solutions, announced today Tyson Foods has selected its FoodLogiQ Compliance product for global supply chain visibility, streamlined supplier management, and quality issue tracking and reporting.
Tyson Foods boasts some of the most recognized brands on grocery store shelves today, including Tyson®, Jimmy Dean®, Hillshire Farm®, Ball Park®, Wright Brand®, Golden Island®, Aidells®, and State Fair®, just to name a few.
Tyson Foods’ selection of FoodLogiQ Compliance for its supplier management needs was a natural progression of a developing relationship, according to Dr. Scott Stillwell, Senior Vice President of Food Safety and Quality Assurance for Tyson Foods, Inc. Tyson Foods’ food safety team recently joined a number of well-known food industry leaders as a participant in FoodLogiQ Lab’s Blockchain pilot. Meanwhile, the Tyson Ventures team, the venture capital arm of Tyson Foods, is one of several prestigious companies to provide investor funding to FoodLogiQ during its B round of investment. Both teams were impressed by the FoodLogiQ suite of products and Trustwell’s focus on mapping the world’s food supply chain.
“Tyson Foods and Trustwell are aligned in our commitment to food quality, safety and transparency,” says Stillwell. “We’re both innovators within the food industry, always staying in front of emerging food and technology trends, and both believe in providing superior products to our customers. Tyson Foods strives to work with business partners who help us elevate and enhance our performance, and we look forward to working with Trustwell.”
Tyson Foods will utilize the Trustwell Connect platform to:
- Centralize supplier documentation to meet Tyson’s corporate quality standards and to facilitate new product evaluations.
- Track and report on quality issues across their supply chain and address those issues with suppliers directly to drive product quality.
- Leverage data-driven reporting to help make informed decisions about food quality issues, supplier performance and expiring documents.
“The name Tyson Foods is synonymous with excellence, and we are proud to add their company to our growing list of customers answering the call for greater transparency from their consumers,” said Katy Jones, Chief Customer and Marketing Office with Trustwell. “The ease of use of the Trustwell platform will allow Tyson Foods to realize a return on investment by creating efficiencies in their supply chain while also providing the visual and analytical reporting that will drive strategic decisions for their business.”
