Blog: Katy AskewCan social media help product safety?

Katy Askew | 5 March 2015

Trace One and SGS Supply Chain Solutions have developed a social network platform that they believe will improve product safety globally by enabling more effective real-time communication in the supply chain. 

The platform combines Trace One's knowledge of supply chain transparency software with SGS's inspection, verification, testing and certification. 

The companies said the social network can enable quick worldwide communication and risk assessment. Businesses can also prompt their partners to join in order to share documentation and information. The integrated platform will provide brand owners, manufacturers and suppliers with "farm-to-fork visibility throughout the entire supply chain", the companies claim. 

This innovative approach to supply chain security has the potential to reduce complexity, increase communication and collaboration in order to boost food safety. It could also generate cost savings for participants. But key to success will be full-chain participation.
