An online tracking system

Founder: Richard Hildyard
Website: www.foodspecifications.com

Richard’s online tracking system for food ingredients was launched in February 2008. The site allows each member of the supply chain, from farmer to retailer to upload nutritional information about a product to a central online database. Members subscribe to the service making it easier to comply with government regulations which require stringent records on food ingredients to be kept. Mostly self-funded by Richard, the company recently picked up a £30,000 prize including cash and support services from local Connect Yorkshire.
