(Nasdaq:CMRC - news), the leader in global e-commerce solutions for business, to deliver business-to-business e-marketplace solutions for the food industry. foodconnex selected the Commerce One Solution and has joined the Global Trading Web(TM), a network of many e-marketplaces running on the Commerce One MarketSite(TM) Portal Solution.

Through a vertical application, foodconnex will provide a one-stop-shop for companies involved in the food industry, at all levels from manufacture through purchase.
