HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Riversand, ESHA Research, and Verdant announce an integrated product offering that provides robust product data management capabilities paired with best-in-class nutrition and labeling compliance automation tools.

This integrated, cloud-based offering provides companies an opportunity to significantly upgrade their product development and go-to-market capabilities with digital tools that drive efficiency and automation to meet today’s demands and to open up new opportunities.

“Food and beverage clients need for their digital transformation a reliable and comprehensive digital Product Information Management (PIM) solution that pulls and synthesizes data from a variety of sources,” said Upen Varanasi, co-founder and CEO at Riversand. “This innovative solution from ESHA, Verdant, and Riversand complements our strong PIM capabilities, omnichannel visibility in supplier and customer collaboration, and intelligent change management and approvals.”

Riversand will leverage ESHA’s Genesis R&D and Verdant’s COG Integration Platform to capture, enrich, approve, and publish accurate technical information for food ingredients, recipes, and key product data such as claims and nutrition labeling.
