If a problem were to be detected in one of the foodstuffs sold by your company, how long would it take for you to check every product affected? With a traceability solution you can do it in just minutes.
It has become increasingly more important to be able to trace all – and we really mean all – aspects of a product’s distribution chain. From the planting of a seed, to processing and freight: everything is crucial when it comes to food safety. This involves major efforts that can be made more difficult by the fact that today’s food production often extends across international borders, with ingredients coming from different parts of the world.
A traceability solution enables you to monitor all parts of the distribution chain - with precise accuracy.
For example, you can monitor:
- The origin of the raw material
- How all ingredients have been processed
- How the product has been packaged
- Delivery of the final product
All of this allows fast action when needed. Hence, if an ingredient in one batch has been contaminated, your company does not need to recall all the products, simply those that have been affected. Food wastage is reduced, food safety increases and the risk of it affecting your brand will decrease.
Advanced business systems and traceability solutions are thereby a natural part of the future of food production. If your company is not there yet, help is just around the corner.
