Introduction to Traceability

Definition for Traceability

Definition for TraceabilityTraceability is defined as the ability to follow the movement of food through specified stages of production, processing and distribution.

In practice, the term traceability stands for a system of record keeping and documentation by operators that enables tracking of the movement of a product or ingredient through the food chain.

 

Why we need traceability in food?

Traceability is becoming more and more important due to,

  • Increasing global focus on food safety, especially on residue monitoring, product standardization, Traceability, etc., and
  • Regular Crisis due to pesticide residue, aflatoxin, etc., in products supplied to customers

Another major reason why this is such a critical point is due to instances where an issue of contamination arises, and a recall is required. Where traceability has been closely adhered to, it is possible to identify, by precise date/time & exact location which goods must be recalled, and which are safe, potentially saving lots of money in the recall process.

Traceability within the food processing industry is also utilised to identify key high production & quality areas of a business, versus those of low return, and where points in the production process may be improved.
