(iFood) announced today that the companies are partnering to deliver an integrated supply chain solution for food safety, traceability and quality management.
As part of the collaboration, HarvestMark and iFood worked together to develop an integrated product offering that enables compatibility between their Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions.
