Commercial sustainability and growth depend on consumer trust. This is achieved through openness and accountability in food production to build credibility with consumers. The “new” transparency consumers seek involves telling the full story behind ingredients, supply chain management, production methods, product labelling, and the environmental/ societal impact of production.
The key to transparency is the reliability of information behind the product, production methods and any associated claims. Certification and verification schemes, accurate risk assessments, end-to-end traceability, and product testing are examples of reliable information which form the basis of product messaging to reach consumers.
What’s behind the product and message matters—both from a regulatory and consumer perspective. Label claims and messaging not backed by objective evidence from credible sources risk safety, quality and integrity exposure, which can shatter consumer trust and ultimately, brand equity.
Food businesses need accurate and reliable information, which validates, verifies and certifies the full scope of the organization’s transparency story from farm to fork. To meet this demand, companies need credible service providers with industry knowledge and expertise managing across the supply chain.
