Free Webinar: An Introduction to Food Supply Chain Traceability
We hear buzzwords like Block Chain, Traceability, Traceback, what does this all mean and how do they relate? According to IFT, there has been significant progress in the area of food traceability in recent years. Several food sectors have elevated the importance of traceability and begun to implement programs in support within their supply chains. Research has identified the beneficial relationship between effective traceability and food security, sustainability, safety, defense, and protection. From carrying out targeted recalls to preventing food waste, traceability is viewed as an essential prerequisite to better supply chain management. This webinar will provide an overview of what is working and challenges remain.
