The Fundamentals of Food Traceability

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.
