Case Study: LGMA
Cloud-based data management solution will drive increased food safety reporting for California LGMA, whose members produce over 70% of lettuce and leafy greens in the United States.
TraQtion has been selected by the California Leafy Greens Marketing Agreement (LGMA) to modernize its audit and data management. TraQtion will enhance LGMA’s existing questionnaire and assessment management with solutions that increase efficiencies and support confidentiality for the organization, whose members produce over 70% of the nation’s lettuce and leafy greens.
LGMA members work to provide consumers with safe leafy greens by adhering to a set of food safety standards and undergoing mandatory government audits. TraQtion’s cloud-based solution will allow LGMA to manage audits through a web-based platform accessible on mobile devices. Authorized stakeholders will be able to review audits, report critical noncompliance issues, issue and verify corrective actions, and complete the auditing process.
“Moving our audit database to TraQtion allows us to work with an industry leader in the realms of public health, audit process improvement and audit data management,” said Greg Komar, California LGMA Technical Director. “Modernizing our database will lead to a myriad of improvements, including ease of maintenance, a more efficient audit process, and improved audit data analysis and reporting. These improvements will not only make our members’ lives better, but through a more efficient audit process and better data analysis, the industry will be able to focus our resources on the areas needing more attention.”
“TraQtion is able to provide LGMA with innovative and multifunctional technology solutions for the entire leafy greens industry,” said Lesley Ma, Vice President, Chief Information and Continuous Improvement Officer at NSF. “We applaud LGMA for taking this step forward in leveling up their systems, which underscores their commitment to food safety and public health.”
