This 90-minute webinar on food safety traceability systems will explore new and cost-effective technologies that enable you to identify, locate and know the condition of food at all stages of shipment and handling.
Food Safety Training, Food Tracing, Tracing Safety of Food, Food and Safety Webinar, Safety Compliance.
With the government moving to electronic food traceability requirements, the pressure will be on to comply at all levels in the food supply chain. If you hold, transport or move food by truck, rail, air or on your back, you are now liable for the condition of the shipment before you accepted the load.
With the government at a complete loss and incapable of identifying and requiring an approach to food traceability, hundreds of approaches are currently under development by private enterprise. When the government finally specifies a standardized electronic approach, it will be up to an army of consultants and hardware and software vendors to help implement it throughout America's food supply systems. Nation-wide and international traceability requirements will move through the entire food supply chain and include farmers, distribution centers, processors, packers, shippers, retailers and restaurants.
Areas Covered in the Seminar:
- RFID, Barcode and Electronic Systems.
- International Traceability.
- Identification, Location and Condition Tracking (ILC).
- Tracking of bins and containers.

- Simple Tagging (slap and ship) as a low risk alternative vs RFID at the high cost end.
- On-line hosted systems vs "own your own".
