Phoenixville, PA, September 25, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- With an expected $100 million to $250 million to be spent on supply chain management (SCM), the global food and pharmaceutical industries’ challenge is how to integrate their supply chain with a safety and anti-counterfeiting demand-driven process.
Food safety and drug counterfeiting represent a considerable risk exposure for food and pharmaceutical manufacturers. According to the Center for Medicines in the Public Interest (CMPI), it is estimated that counterfeit drug sales will grow 13 percent annually through 2010, compared to 7.5 percent estimated annual growth for global pharmaceutical commerce. As an example, if consumers have adverse experiences because food safety was compromised or medication was counterfeited and these were not detected, then the manufacturer is subject to FDA inspections, as well as bad press and lawsuits (e.g., Peanut Corporation of America).
Corporate Health Initiatives Consulting, LLC (CorpHI), has developed a toolset that provides clients with a methodology to determine where their supply chain is most vulnerable, understand how and when this can occur and what measures they need to take to minimize their risk. CorpHI has also partnered with premier leaders in hardware and software technologies to construct robust serialization, track & trace and ePedigree solutions specifically for the food and pharmaceutical industries.
“In today’s economy, companies not only are trying to reduce costs within their supply chain but also are looking to streamline processes and reduce the number of hands a product has to pass through,” noted Dr. Paul V Matsiras, Managing Director of Corporate Health Initiatives Consulting, LLC. “Besides evaluating the overall operational efficiency, food and pharmaceutical companies pay equal attention to the supply chain’s safety and security by leveraging serialization, track & trace and ePedigree solutions.”
