Leavitt Partners And Park City Group Unite To Build A Global Food And Drug Safety Registry

Stocks in this article: PCYG

Leavitt Partners, an internationally-known health care and food safety consulting firm, and Park City Group (NYSE Amex:  PCYG), a leader in consumer goods supply chain technology, have joined to create a solution targeted toward improving supply chain visibility for food and drug safety. The solution creates visibility from the farm to the fork in the food industry, and from the manufacturer to the pharmacy in the pharmaceuticals industry. The new partnership will help food retailers, foodservice operators, wholesalers and manufacturers protect their brands and be compliant with current and future regulatory requirements that could emerge from the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). It will also provide tracking and tracing of pharmaceuticals through the supply chain from manufacturer to retailer, as numerous state and federal laws require.

The database of trading partner connections can easily, quickly and economically help identify the source of suspect product, as well as track it throughout the supply chain. Since the system works with existing electronic documents, it requires no special labeling, hardware or software; and can be deployed for no more than the cost of an average monthly cell phone bill. The database will reduce tracking times from weeks to minutes, so affected products can quickly be identified and removed from all trade channels, which can ultimately save lives. The partnership expects to commence operation with a select number of retailers, foodservice operators, wholesalers and manufacturers in the next few months.

“The federal and state level food and drug tracking and tracing laws are placing a significant responsibility on retailers, manufacturers and other suppliers to know exactly where their product comes from and where it’s going to. Our partnership with Park City Group will deliver a very comprehensive and inexpensive solution for clients that both meets regulatory obligations and generates supply chain productivity opportunities,” said Rich McKeown, President of Leavitt Partners. “The Park City Group solution not only exists today, but is proven, scalable and very cost effective.”
