TrusTrace, a global SaaS company renowned for its market-leading platform in supply chain traceability and compliance, has made a significant announcement.

Brooks Running, a prominent name in performance running footwear and apparel, has chosen the TrusTrace platform to gain deeper visibility into its manufacturing supply chain.

This strategic move aims to identify and mitigate responsible sourcing and business continuity risks, furthering Brooks' commitment to sustainability and transparency.

Building a Sustainable Future

TrusTrace CEO and Co-Founder Shameek Ghosh expressed excitement about the partnership, emphasising TrusTrace's vision for a future where all value chains are traceable, circular, and fair.

By collaborating with Brooks, the platform will support the company on its journey towards achieving transparency and responsible sourcing objectives. By collecting granular data on production processes, Brooks will be empowered to improve its supply chain's social and environmental impact while adhering to complex regulations.
