Industry Night: Food Logistics – Barcoding Inc. Makes FL100
Barcoding Inc. was featured in the 2011 FL100 from Food Logistics magazine
Each year, Food Logistics magazine recognizes 100 software and technology companies that allow grocery and food service distributors and manufacturers to achieve their business goals. This year, they focused on solution providers that are helping their customers differentiate themselves in the marketplace, while facilitating improved safety and traceability throughout the supply chain.
Barcoding Inc. made the FL100* list, which is featured in the November/December 2011 issue of Food Logistics. Barcoding Inc.’s robust partner network allows for comprehensive supply chain distribution solutions. Many of our partners also made the list, including: Airclic, Descartes Systems Group, Intermec, Lucas Systems, LXE (now part of Honeywell), Motorola Solutions, Psion, Xata and Zebra Technologies.
Comprehensive supply chain distribution solutions bring real-time visibility, which allows companies to track and trace food products every step of the way. Barcoding Inc.’s mobile solutions offer the highest level of connectivity over supply chain operations, using automation to ultimately improve accuracy and productivity.
Lara L. Sowinski, editor-in-chief, Food Logistics, stated, “With the passage of the FDA’s landmark Food Safety and Modernization Act, the entire food and beverage sector is under increased pressure to improve safety and traceability throughout the supply chain. In addition, the ongoing globalization of food supply chains demands closer collaboration with suppliers and enhanced visibility from farm to fork. Technology is a powerful tool that can ensure compliance, mitigate risk, and serve as a market differentiator in today’s highly competitive environment.”
In response to making the FL100, Jay Steinmetz, president, Barcoding, Inc., said, “Barcoding continues to extend its capabilities in the foodservice industry by working closely with leading technology partners. By successfully integrating hardware and software solutions that incorporate automatic identification data capture—AIDC—technology, mobile capabilities and automation into the distribution process, food distributors and manufacturers can more accurately track and trace their products through the supply chain. These capabilities help our customers adhere to the latest food safety regulations, while improving their bottom line.”
