Each year, the editors of Food Logistics recognize 100 technology and solution providers that help grocery and foodservice distributors and manufacturers reach their business goals. This year, the magazine focused the theme on bouncing back from tough economic times using technology.
“At a given volume automated systems fill orders with more speed, accuracy & safety while using much less energy than manual warehouses “said Burke McCarthy, Retrotech Marketing Director. “This makes our customers more profitable and adaptable to future needs. One customer, who ordered a new system in the midst of the economic downturn, is now reaping significant benefits.”
The FL100 listing provides a guide for decision-making grocery and foodservice distribution and manufacturing executives. After receiving nomination forms from end users and solution providers, the editorial staff culled through more than 140 submissions to compile this year’s listing. Final recipients are featured in the November/December 2010 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at www.foodlogistics.com.
Pete Hartman, Retrotech President remarked, “We are pleased to be part of the FL100 listing. Being named to such a widely respected list as this provides the Retrotech team with a great sense of pride.” Hartman continued “this recognition further validates our approach of focusing on customer needs instead of wants and taking ownership for the solutions we recommend.”
The FL100 is not a ranking. The alphabetical list has been designed to help the readers of Food Logistics find the best technology service and solution providers to the food industry.
