The journey of getting a food product to market is filled with potential risks and pitfalls, with distribution and transportation being one of largest blind spots within the food supply chain.

It is important for importers and exporters to know that their perishables are being kept in the right condition and that the product that was purchased is always the same product that arrives.

Traceability and compliance are two main issues imposed on food distributors and transporters. Intertek’s expertise in food traceability, regulatory compliance, and food safety and inspection offers assurance to our clients that the products being transported are validated and reach their next destination to ultimately delight their customers.

Food distribution and transportation organisations utilise inspection as a means to control quality, consistency and compliance with local regulations. Intertek’s global food experts offer loading supervision (LS) and final random inspection (FRI) solutions wherever you do business. 

Our food regulation experts offer global regulatory assessment solutions to food and supplement companies as a partner, adding value to your business objectives. 

Distributors importing and exporting food products need assurance that the products they sell and buy are genuine, safe, and excellent in quality. Intertek’s label validation solutions allow companies to see the nutritional and microbiological analyses of their food products. 

As a result of rapid globalisation, Food Safety Management Systems standards have become an important part of the global food supply chain. Food safety standards implicitly show buyers and suppliers that a business utilises adequate food safety practices in their business.

Distributors and transporters are a vital piece of the food supply chain and greatly benefit from food traceability solutions which keep the food supply chain accountable and visible,offering confidence to consumers that their food is reliably and responsibly sourced.

Programs to equip employees with the knowledge and confidence they need to elevate safety, productivity, culture, and compliance initiatives.

With increasing global complexity of today's supply chains, the Inlight platform delivers supply chain risk transparency through data analytics and reporting.
