Supply chain mapping service

28 July 2018

A new free supply chain mapping service has been launched by food and drink software company QADEX, to help ensure the integrity of global supply chains. 

At a time when food fraud in the supply chain is increasing and costly product recalls caused by contaminated ingredients are rising, QADEX’s Supply Chain Mapper service is a timely offering, and is being offered free of charge for up to three years for use by everyone in the supply chain – from retailers and foodservice operators to manufacturers and farmers.

“One free industry-wide platform would mean that the whole supply chain can be mapped quickly for the benefit of all honest actors in the food supply chain,” said Stephen Whyte, managing director at QADEX.

Supply Chain Mapper will come with regular upgrades and extra functionality is planned over coming months.

Supply chain maps enable ‘chain of custody’ mapping, in which users’ full supply chains can be seen in either chronological view or map view. A zoom function allows users to focus on supplier locations and countries of origin. Whether you are procuring ingredients directly or through agents and brokers, the system enables users to drill down to storage locations, right back to individual farmers and fishing vessels.
