GoGo-Squeez-logo

Leading Snack Food Company

Materne North America, makers of the popular GoGo squeeZ™ health snacks, had a problem most brands would love to have. When retailer demand for its products exploded, the company needed to open a new distribution center to service West Region customers. After a competitive search, Kane Logistics was chosen to run the facility, which handles well over a million cases a month.

 

KANE oversaw a seamless transition to the new facility. Within two weeks of the first load arriving, the facility was fully operational. In this video, Materne executives comment on the start-up.

The Logisticians Guide to the Food Safety Modernization Act

The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is considered to be the most sweeping piece of food safety legislation since the Food Drug and Cosmetic Act of 1938. The Act’s focus is on preventing food safety problems before they develop. 

Here are key provisions of FSMA as it relates to logistics:

  • Prior to the Act’s passage, the FDA needed “credible evidence” to trigger a recall. Now they need simply a “reason to believe” that public health may be compromised based on the absence of preventative measures anywhere along the food supply chain. That means that you and food logistics companies along the country's food supply chain must be able to quickly trace the source and final delivery point of food products.  
  • During the many years it took to formulate the FSMA, the FDA sought input from food and food logistics companies. As a result, the rule was revised to allow shippers to define the requirements for food warehouse and distribution operations.  


Here’s what the FDA said:

  • We believe the shipper is in the best position of the parties covered by this rule to know the appropriate specifications for transport of its food.


Translation:
the government won’t dictate to you WHAT needs to happen to ensure safe food grade transport; only that you, as the shipper, need to define the plan and follow it – or else.  From the packaging plant and the warehouse to the loading dock and the truck, food logistics companies such as 3PLs can work with you to meet requirements throughout the entire supply chain.   Read more
