Barcoding, Inc., a leader in enterprise-wide mobility solutions, announced that it has been named to Food Logistics' 2011 FL100. Food Logistics, the only publication dedicated exclusively to the grocery and foodservice distribution supply chain, released the eighth-annual listing of the FL100 in its November/December 2011 issue. Each year, the editors of Food Logistics recognize 100 software and technology providers that better enable grocery and foodservice distributors and manufacturers to realize their business goals. This year, the publication focused on solution providers that are helping their customers differentiate themselves in the marketplace, while simultaneously facilitating improved safety and traceability throughout the supply chain.
Barcoding draws from its robust partner network to provide comprehensive supply chain distribution solutions with real-time, end-to-end visibility, allowing companies to accurately track and trace food products through every step of the supply chain-most notably the last mile. These mobile solutions provide a level of connectivity that gives foodservice distributors complete control over supply chain operations, with automation that improves accuracy, efficiency, and productivity. Special congratulations should be extended to the Barcoding partners that also made the 2011 list: Airclic, Descartes Systems Group, Intermec, Lucas Systems, LXE (now part of Honeywell), Motorola Solutions, Psion, Xata and Zebra Technologies.
"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," noted Lara L. Sowinski, editor-in-chief at Food Logistics. "Technology is a powerful tool that can ensure compliance, mitigate risk, and serve as a market differentiator in today's highly competitive environment."
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."
The FL100 listing serves as a resource for grocery and foodservice distribution and manufacturing executives. After receiving nomination forms from end users and solution providers, the editorial staff reviewed over 160 submissions to compile this year's listing. Final recipients are featured in the November/December 2011 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at www.foodlogistics.com.
The FL100 is not a ranking. The alphabetical list has been designed to help the readers of Food Logistics identify the leading software and technology providers in the food and beverage industry.
