FORT ATKINSON, Wis., Dec. 16, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Food Logistics, the only publication dedicated exclusively to the global food and beverage supply chain, this week announced the eleventh annual FL100+ list, which appears in the November/December 2014 issue. Leading Cloud provider of supply chain planning and analytics solutions Blue Ridge was named to the eleventh annual FL 100+ list.

"The impact of software and technology on the global food supply chain is truly profound," emphasizes Lara L. Sowinski, Editor-in-Chief at Food Logistics. "Software solution providers, equipment manufacturers and numerous technology innovations are supporting growth in our industry while concurrently lowering operating costs, improving productivity and enhancing visibility from farm to fork."

For more than a decade, the editors of Food Logistics have profiled software and technology providers that hold influential roles in the global food and beverage supply chain. Their products benefit the industry in multiple ways, from reducing food waste and extending shelf life, to facilitating safe and sanitary transportation of product while assuring regulatory compliance.

Indeed, the robust activity in the software and technology sector relative to the global food and beverage supply chain prompted Food Logistics to expand the list this year and rename it as the FL100+. "The FL100+ allows us to accommodate and showcase the growing number of companies active in this space," added Sowinski. "Equally important, our readers benefit from the goal of the FL100+, which is to ultimately serve as a resource guide for our audience."

Companies who earned a spot on the FL100+ list are featured in the November/December 2014 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at

Blue Ridge was honored to be included in FL 100+ for the second year in a row. "The increased competition is evidence that more and more food and beverage companies are looking to innovative Cloud solution providers to solve today's supply chain challenges," stated Greg White, CEO of Blue Ridge. White continued, "Recognition such as this is both strong validation of the results our Cloud solutions provide as well as motivation to continue our development of solutions that strengthen our customers' supply chain and bottom line."
