The second-largest manufacturer of Valentine boxed chocolate in North America, Elmer Chocolate works with approximately 100 suppliers.
Elmer Chocolate was first introduced to ReposiTrak’s compliance management system when, as a supplier, it submitted compliance documents to several of its retail customers. “After looking into the solutions offered by ReposiTrak, we found that it complemented our problem areas for supplier verification,” said Nitya Sarjapuram, Quality Assurance Manager at Elmer Chocolate, “so it will help make our verification process more efficient, accurate and compliant. The fact that the solution is a combination of people with technology was the biggest selling point for us.”
