ReposiTrak Traceability Network adds suppliers ahead of 2026 deadline

Park City Group Inc., parent company of global food traceability and regulatory compliance network ReposiTrak, has added two more specialty produce suppliers ahead of the January 2026 deadline for compliance with the Food and Drug Administration’s Food Traceability Final Rule.

The unspecified new users will exchange FDA-required Key Data Elements for each Critical Tracking Event in the supply chain to help ensure compliance, according to a news release. Suppliers will use the ReposiTrak Traceability Network to do traceability with an in-network food supply chain company and an in-network wholesaler, according to the release.

Network users include:

  • A Salinas Valley-based company that grows, packages and delivers premium greens.
  • A Texas-based wholesale watermelon company that has been in operation for more than 20 years.

“Many produce suppliers have chosen to do traceability for their entire line of products, not just for foods represented on the FDA’s Food Traceability List,” Randy Fields, ReposiTrak chairman and CEO, said in a news release. “Delivering the data with the product sets them apart from their competition and makes the receiving process faster and easier at warehouses and stores where they deliver product.”

Fields told Produce Processing that RTN includes around 3,400 companies working to ensure compliance with section 204(d) of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, which establishes traceability recordkeeping requirements beyond those currently in existence for manufacturers, processers, packers or holders of foods included on the Food Traceability List.

ReposiTrak uses a proven inventory management and out-of-stock reduction Software as a Service (SaaS) platform to help suppliers connect to trading partners. Suppliers can connect to an unlimited number of potential trading partners and begin data sharing for a flat fee, according to the release.
