Trimble has acquired the assets of a provider of food traceability and quality control insights from YottaMark of California.

HarvestMark has four software products to look through the fresh food supply chain from farm to fork.

Coupled with Trimble's Connected Farm system, HarvestMark enables producers to make real-time decisions of fresh food grown on farms.

By monitoring quality metrics, producers can monitor the delivery of food to the retailer and reduce the likelihood and impact of a foodborne outbreak.

Trimble said it can now offer fresh food transporters, distributors and retailers visibility into fleet equipment performance, driver effectiveness and cargo origin and handling across the supply chain. 

HarvestMark includes software to ensure compliancy with the Produce Traceability Initiative and create visibility throughout the supply chain, DC Insights, an ERP mobile application, Retail Insights mobile application and the Connect platform that allows retailers and food producers to engage customers. 

Mark Harrington, vice president of Trimble, said the deal adds value to distribution centers and food retailers by providing a tool for tracking goods.

"By combining HarvestMark with our Connected Farm and Transportation and Logistics solutions, we can enable producers, distributors and retailers to coordinate their activities to deliver the best quality foods to consumers.”
