Bamboo Rose Launches First-Ever Digital Platform for the Food and Formulation Community

The multi-enterprise platform developed for the food industry supports all food categories as well as hardlines and soft lines


BOSTON – October 1, 2019 – Bamboo Rose, the leading multi-enterprise product and supply chain platform, today announced the launch of Bamboo Rose Multi-Enterprise Platform for Food and Formulation.  The digital platform enables grocers, consumer packaged goods (CPG), and global brand companies to develop and deliver both private label and branded food and formulated products.


From early ideation, business case, recipe management, and formulation, to supplier quality, compliance, global trade management, the Bamboo Rose multi-enterprise platform for food and formulation provides complete traceability down the factory-line level.


“We heard from many in the food industry that they had searched for years for one platform to handle all food and non-food categories. They were forced to cobble together multiple solutions, which siloed their organizations, people, and partners. As we know, operating in a siloed environment is far too slow and costly, which makes it that much more difficult to thrive in today’s competitive food market,” said Sue Welch, chief executive officer of Bamboo Rose.


Welch continued, “That’s why we created the first multi-enterprise platform specifically for this industry, because end-to-end platforms are critical for delivering value to all stakeholders throughout the food supply chain. Our platform supports more collaboration and transparency, empowering our customers to stand behind the quality of their products.”


The Bamboo Rose Multi-Enterprise Platform for Food and Formulation brings unmatched benefits to the industry, including:

  • Multi-Enterprise Engagement: No other solution is architected to engage and drive value for all members of the food community. The solution allows brand and product managers, suppliers, manufacturers, farmers, quality professionals, packing houses, regulatory bodies, and labeling organizations, among others, to collaborate on creating high-quality, compliant products at the highest margin possible, driving value for all parties involved.
  • Cross Product Support: Enterprises today need to consolidate their product development and supply chain efforts to drive efficiency and support innovation. The Bamboo Rose platform provides one source of data for all food categories (fresh, formulated, manufactured, and in-store), as well as hardlines, soft lines, and apparel.
  • End-to-End Capability: The Bamboo Rose platform supports food and formulated grocers and CPG firms from ideation, product lifecycle management, sourcing, to purchase order management, global trade management, and supply chain. With the platform’s end-to-end traceability, users can be sure they’re accessing consistent, accurate data to ensure product compliance across the board.


In developing the platform, Bamboo Rose enlisted the collaborative efforts of existing customer Loblaw, Canada’s largest food distributor and purveyor of top-quality popular private label brands. Bamboo Rose also works with other grocers in the U.S., Australia, Europe and South Africa, including Shoprite, Africa’s largest retailer. Shoprite manages its food imports through the Bamboo Rose platform, using its sourcing and global trade management solutions for supply chain and logistics management, maintaining complete visibility in production, in transit and through receipt at the distribution centers.
