Track and trace eBook

Tuesday, 25 June, 2013

Traceability is particularly important in the food processing industry because if something goes wrong there is a genuine risk that consumers may die. The root cause of any contamination needs to be identified and all affected food traced and removed from consumer access with all possible speed.

If producers and retailers can track their products all the way from farm to factory, and then into the retailer, then taking corrective action becomes a lot easier. New, real-time technologies are making the tracking and tracing of foods much easier and they are no longer prohibitively expensive.

As the length and complexity of food chains increases, so too does the potential for contamination. This eBook looks at track-and-trace systems to protect both consumers and the companies' brands.
