Global Food Traceability Center Education & TrainingBackground

One of the early achievements of the Center has been be to serve as an international “go-to” resource for agriculture and food traceability. This area of the Center has taken advantage of efforts in which IFT already excels: education, learning, outreach, training, and communication of ideas and knowledge.

The Center offers web and face-to-face seminars, workshops, online library resources, and conferences so that stakeholders may share information about traceability solutions and concepts. The Center also provides advisory services to help businesses and governments address gaps in current traceability procedures and practices.
