Many industries have been using product traceability since the early 2000s to increase total quality. Today, legislators make traceability of products such as food mandatory, which has the potential to affect public health devastatingly. Recently, The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) initiated a study on food traceability under FSMA. Likewise, Russia, addressing food traceability in the CRPT project, has implemented it for dairy products. Also, Australia has implemented an innovative traceability implementation (beef blockchain) covering all meat products with blockchain technology. Furthermore, food authorities of other countries define traceability as a necessity for products considered to be at-risk groups.
Soon, food production companies will need to adapt and operate their supply chains following the regulations prepared by legislators on food traceability. You can access the list of products that the FDA offers to comply with FSMA by clicking here. It is a large-scale digital transformation project for an enterprise to redesign and implement its supply chain according to food traceability requirements. In this article, we will try to explain how you can redesign an existing supply chain to meet traceability requirements.
