See how TraceGains became an essential part of their strategy and what employees across their supply chain had to say about life after networked power.
Wellington Foods Company Snapshot
Wellington Foods is an industry-leading contract manufacturer specializing in liquid and powder-based dietary supplements. Founded in 1974, they serve a wide variety of brands and market segments and are the trusted partner of many well-known brands with national and international distribution.
Increased demand for specialized products created more paperwork due to a more rigorous qualification process for certified products.
Paper Based Processes
Documentation management kept on spreadsheets and servers slowed the movement of information and posed the risk of human error.
Communicating with suppliers was cumbersome and often delayed product releases complicating customer relationships.
With TraceGains Networked Supplier Management, Wellington Foods now has a single source of truth for all supply chain and quality documentation. Quality, Regulatory, Procurement and Sourcing teams all have access to vital documentation to help keep customer product releases on track.
TraceGains Marketplace lets Wellington Foods source with both confidence and speed, giving them access not just to ingredient listings but to documentation and data.
We’ve invested in a lot of different parts of our operation that help our customers grow their business. TraceGains is part of our plan to continue getting better, to do more.
—Tony Harnack, CEO of Wellington Foods
