Today’s global food supply chain has become increasingly complex as companies seek greater efficiencies to feed the world’s growing population. Product tracing has emerged as a critical means to follow key information about the attributes and origin of products -- from farm to processing to retail and food service, or to the family table.
Learn from the experts as we explore the basic concepts of traceability, traceability regulations and the challenges faced by small to mid-size companies when implementing traceability practices. Join us as we address general principles, systems, and common best practices for traceability.
