Decernis delivers enterprise solutions that integrate with client processes to give horizon scanning and predictive analytics based on artificial intelligence, speed-to-market with recipe clearance, supply chain management, and reference databases. These solutions provide the most complete regulatory intelligence software suite on the market, covering over 90,000 global regulations in more than 200 countries.

We believe this acquisition is a strong strategic fit for FoodChain ID, strengthening its customer base and building on its global profile, domain expertise and agrifood industry leadership.
