United Natural Products Alliance Adopts Industry Food Safety Standard from
UNPA support positions ReposiTrak at the center of the track and trace effort
for dietary supplements and natural and functional foods
SALT LAKE CITY -- August 27, 2013
The United Natural Products Alliance (UNPA), a leading international
association of dietary supplement, functional food and natural health products
companies, today announced its commitment to food safety by endorsing and
agreeing to promote the use of track and trace technology from ReposiTrak, a
solution provider backed by international food safety consultants Leavitt
Partners and retail technology experts Park City Group (NYSE MKT: PCYG). The
ReposiTrak system, which includes Document Management and Track & Trace
applications, will be made available to and employed by UNPA members during
the coming months.
“It is critical that our members know exactly where their ingredients are
coming from and where finished goods are going so customers and consumers have
total confidence in their brands. ReposiTrak, which we believe is quickly
becoming the industry standard across the retail food industry, creates the
visibility needed to reduce risks and ensure that only safe products are being
sold to shoppers,” said Loren D. Israelsen, President of UNPA.
Powered by Park City Group’s technology, ReposiTrak enables grocery
warehouses, supermarkets, packaged goods manufacturers, food processing
facilities, drug stores and drug manufacturers, as well as logistics partners,
to track and trace products and components throughout the global food, drug
and dietary supplement supply chains. In addition, the technology addresses
the market need of receiving, storing, sharing, and maintaining regulatory
documentation all in one convenient location. ReposiTrak reduces risk in the
supply chain by identifying backward chaining sources and forward chaining
recipients of products in near real time.
“UNPA is an innovative trade group acting to safeguard its members in a market
that is increasingly complicated by changing consumer behavior and new
government and food safety regulations. ReposiTrak helps UNPA accomplish this
goal by enabling its members to see all product flows and act quickly and
effectively to address any issues before they become real problems,” said Rich
McKeown, President of ReposiTrak.
The United Natural Products Alliance (UNPA) is an international association
representing many leading dietary supplement, functional food and analytical
companies that share a commitment to provide consumers with natural health
products of superior quality, benefit and reliability. Founded in Utah in
1991, UNPA was instrumental in the passage of the 1994 Dietary Supplement
Health and Education Act (DSHEA) and continues to take a leadership position
in regulatory issues and industry best practices. Visit www.unpa.com.
