Under the partnership, Oritain will continue to audit Foodbuy suppliers by carrying out independent and trusted scientific product analysis.

Ian Murphy, Chief Procurement Officer for Foodbuy said: “We take supply chain integrity very seriously and are excited to be enhancing our already robust processes by working more closely with Oritain.”

“We’re committed to working with our suppliers to build sustainable partnerships and already have a number of processes in place to ensure transparency, but by partnering with Oritain, we can provide that extra level of innovation and reassurance to clients that they are receiving the very best quality products.”

Rupert Hodges, Executive Director of Oritain UK, said: “Foodbuy is a very innovative business and we’re delighted to have extended our partnership with them. This is a real testament to the value that Oritain can offer to Foodbuy’s clients through providing a reliable traceability service which helps enhance the integrity of its supply chain.”
