Product traceability


To manage supply relations, HMSHost relies on a historic partner, Avendra, a founding partner of Foodservice GS1 US Standard Initiative (a voluntary initiative bringing together all market players with a view to eliminating waste from the food supply chain, improving product information and consolidating the foundation of food safety through improved traceability).

In the case of agreements with local suppliers, a pre-qualification and annual re-qualification process is implemented to guarantee quality management and product recall. With long term suppliers, like Starbucks, Burger King, CPK and Johnny Rockets, HMSHost utilizes the same recall and traceability methods adopted by the brand in question.

In Italy too, product safety and traceability are crucial. An electronic platform carries out supplier goods entry and pallet handling activities and identifies the time span for order delivery from the two warehouses in Anagni and Pieve Emanuele to the stores.

Batch labeling is carried out in cooperation with the suppliers, who apply a bar code.
