Plug Power Inc has announced it has been named to the 2014 Food Logistics FL100+ list. Food Logistics is the only publication dedicated exclusively to the global food and beverage supply chain.

The publication’s 11th annual FL100+ list profiles innovative technology and software providers who influence the global food and beverage supply chains.

Plug Power’s notable solution, GenKey, is commercialising the hydrogen and fuel cell market. GenKey helps food and beverage companies smoothly transition their material handling vehicles over to hydrogen fuel, with Plug Power serving as the single-source vendor providing:

  • GenDrive fuel cell units
  • GenFuel hydrogen and fuelling infrastructure
  • GenCare service and aftermarket support

GenKey was launched in January 2014, and Plug Power has already closed more than a dozen GenKey deals. The foundation of GenKey is based on customer trust – industry leaders such as Walmart and Kroger have deeply invested in the Plug Power solution.

“2014 has been a breakout year for Plug Power as we’ve scaled our business and proven the productivity benefits and cost-effectiveness of our technology with major companies in North America,” said Andy Marsh, CEO at Plug Power. “This success will translate into global momentum in material handling and other niche markets. Plug Power is honoured to be recognised for inclusion on the FL100+ list, and we congratulate others that have been named as well.”

“The impact of software and technology on the global food supply chain is truly profound,” emphasises 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.”
