On the 1st of February, Nature's Pride joined Agriplace, the largest compliance platform for safe and sustainable supply chain management in fruit and vegetables. Nature's Pride, a well-known player in the exotic fruit and vegetable industry, has recently switched to Agriplace Chain as its supply chain management system. With Agriplace Chain, Nature's Pride and its growers gain quick and easy access to crucial information regarding certifications, pesticide usage, and inspection reports of their complete supply chain, thus simplifying the data collection and approval process.
As an exotic fruit and vegetables supplier, Nature's Pride connections and supply chains stretch into international waters, translating into complex and long supply chains that require a strong supply chain approval platform.
‘’Nature’s Pride is a frontrunner in the fresh industry and sets a new standard in sustainability, for people and nature’’ tells Nico Broersen, Managing Director at Agriplace. ‘’We are proud they have chosen to work with us as their new platform to ensure the right information is always there to guarantee their supply chain adheres to the social, environmental and food safety requirements that they set’’. Nico continued ‘’Furthermore, we share the same core values where socially and environmentally just supply chains should benefit suppliers instead of subtracting value and we aim to deliver on this together.’’
‘’The comprehensive functionalities from the Agriplace platform, ease of use for Nature's Pride and suppliers and lastly database integrations were the main factors that made it the preferred choice for Nature's Pride’’

Automation and process improvement are key for Nature’s Pride
