Silicon Valley-based FoodLink, a buying platform that connects fresh food retailers and wholesalers to a network of over 2,000 supplier companies across North America, has opened a new development centre in Pune, India.
FoodLink’s new office will house rapidly expanding development team building mobile and cloud-based solutions for the global fresh food supply chain.
“The fresh food supply chain is complex, but it has never been more critical to manage it effectively to reduce waste and improve food safety,” said Eric Peters, CEO, FoodLink.
“Opening this new development centre is a reflection of the importance of the Indian market and our belief that the best solutions always start with the best people,” he added.
With over $10 billion in annual commerce and more than 2,000 fresh food suppliers, buyers and transportation carriers on its network, FoodLink is a platform for produce buying and selling and enables all participants in the fresh food supply chain to track and trace items from the moment they are harvested to the point at which a consumer makes a purchase. The FoodLink network is also an “open platform” capable of tying all relevant supply chain and procurement data directly to purchase orders.
