Product traceability

Traceability is a risk-management tool which enables food business operators or authorities to respond to that need.

Traceability is defined as the ability to discern, identify and follow the movement of a food or substance intended to be or expected to be incorporated into a food, through all stages of production, processing and distribution. It is vital that when national authorities or food businesses identify a risk they can trace it back to its source in order to swiftly isolate the problem and prevent contaminated products from reaching consumers..

The system of raceability is composed of rules (promises and agreement) and procedures, documented procedures, organizations/systems, and process and management resources (personnel, financial resources, machinery equipment, software, technologies and techniques), regulations and education / training.

A traceability system allows an organization to document and / or to locate a product through the stages and operations involved in the manufacture, processing, distribution and handling of feed and food, from primary production to consumption. It can therefore facilitate the identification of the cause of nonconformity of a product, and improve the ability to withdraw or recall such product if necessary and prevent unsafe products from reaching the customers.
