IFT Hosts Traceability Meeting

July 15, 2011

IFT hosted a meeting of nearly 50 thought-leaders in traceability on July 14. Representatives from many parts of the food system, including food companies, trade associations, state and Federal government representatives, and technology providers discussed some of the key attributes of the traceability system of the future, and the key requirements and challenges related to achieving a common vision. The meeting was funded by IFT's Traceability Improvement Initiative, supported by BASF Nutrition & Health and Underwriters Laboratories.
