CARTERET, N.J. and TORRANCE, Calif.- Pathmark Stores Inc. has signed on with Agribuys Inc., a leading provider of supply chain management software and services targeted specifically for the fresh foods industry, to use Fresh Foods Link.
This long-term pact was consummated after Pathmark achieved successful results from a pilot conducted in the first quarter of 2003. The agreement will extend Agribuys' deployment of both its supply chain software and marketplace services throughout Pathmark's perishable operations.
"Pathmark is committed to applying world-class technologies that allow us to offer our customers the highest quality product at the lowest possible cost," said John Ruane, Pathmark's SVP of perishable merchandising. "Agribuys' technology and services enable us to effectively reach more suppliers," Ruane added.
Agribuys estimates that they will have Pathmark fully up and running in the produce department in less than two months. Supplier configuration, on-boarding and training have already begun.
