What is Traceability?
Agri-food Traceability is the ability to follow products through all stages of the agri-food chain - from production to retail. It provides an effective way to track an identified product (and its attributes) as it moves between locations. It is important:
A traceability system captures, stores and shares information about products received, internal production and operational processes, all the way to finished goods that are shipped and sold to the customer.
Types of traceability systems range from simple paper-based recordkeeping to more sophisticated information management that uses automated and computerized components for efficient data capture and secure access to information.
