Food Traceability – From Research to Readiness to Profits
Food traceability is achieved through a combination of best practices, defined processes, standardized data collection, and reporting. It’s best automated with technology to make the whole process more efficient, to reduce the inherent costs, and to provide supply-chain partners, regulators, and consumers with timely information specific to the production of their food items.
Increasing regulation in the food industry requires food traceability to a certain degree, but good business practice demands that food producers, food processors, distributors, and even retail chains go beyond simply providing the minimum accountability.
Choosing the right traceability solution is a personal journey. If it’s done right and implemented properly by the right solution partner utilizing the appropriate, proven technologies and best practices, it’s fair to say traceability should not be considered an added cost but an enabler to your company’s long-term success.
