Deloitte and Decernis form strategic alliance

NEW YORK — In an era of increasingly complex global supply chains and product safety concerns, Deloitte and Decernis have formed a strategic alliance to provide compliance solutions to consumer product, food service, retail and distribution companies.

The alliance combines Deloitte's food safety, quality and supply chain experience and the software platform and content provided by Decernis for tracking and alerting consumer businesses about compliance issues.

"This strategic alliance is highly synergistic and combines Deloitte's deep regulatory advisory experience, supported by the member firms of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited, with Decernis's renowned global regulatory knowledge base and systems. This alliance enhances Deloitte's ability to help clients with food safety regulatory matters globally, including emerging markets. Decernis, through this alliance, significantly enhances its ability to add value to its clients by leveraging Deloitte's food safety and FDA/USDA regulatory experience," said James Cascone, principal, Deloitte & Touche and national leader of Deloitte's food & product safety practice.

"We are delighted to collaborate with Deloitte to provide solutions to meet the increasingly difficult challenge for companies in consumer and food sectors to be alerted to and to understand the requirements applicable to their products in a global market," said Andrew (Pat) Waldo, CEO, Decernis.

Deloitte and Decernis have collaborated before with a number of clients, and enjoyed positive results.
