Procurant Digitizes MDI’s Produce Inspections


Watsonville, California-based Procurant has announced that Procurant Inspect, its mobile produce inspection solution, has been selected by Merchants Distributors Inc. to use across its network of regional distribution centers.

“Produce inspections are a critical yet labor-intensive part of bringing safe, high-quality products to our customers. Procurant Inspect lets us enhance and simplify that process for our inspectors, and it adds timely information for our buyers and suppliers that are already using Procurant to manage orders and payments,” said Chuck Alexander, SVP, procurement, MDI.

Procurant Inspect is a mobile application that runs on a tablet device. The solution helps the labor-intensive process of inspecting produce and other perishables at distribution centers.

In addition, Procurant Inspect integrates with the company’s main platform, where buyers and suppliers can manage shipment information and purchase orders. This integrated approach supports advanced analytics into supplier performance and quality, and provides rapid visibility to all parties if rejections occur.

Platform features include:

  • Commodity-specific USDA standard defect lists;
  • Visibility into inspection status and scores for buyers using Procurant One;
  • Advanced search capability for inspectors to quickly identify orders;
  • On-demand load rejection reports with details, images and comments; and
  • Inspection analytics with summaries of inspections and supplier scores.

Procurant works with the global food supply chain using technology to reduce waste, increase visibility, improve food safety and digitize business from production to consumption. The company was founded by industry veterans with decades of experience delivering solutions to growers, shippers, distributors, retailers and foodservice operators. It is backed by GLP Properties, a global investment manager and business builder in logistics, real estate, infrastructure, finance and related technologies.

The company will be demonstrating the new Procurant Inspect solution at the upcoming IFPA Global Produce and Floral Show Oct. 27-29 in Orlando, Florida.

Procurant is hosting a free webinar about its Inspect solution on Oct. 20, featuring former USDA inspector Paul Manol. To register, click here.
