Traceability is highly important within the supply chain of any manufacturer, as it provides the ability to recall products, track production and match replacement parts quickly.
Traceability has three key benefits; it increases supply chain visibility, improves quality control systems and reduces risk. By keeping a record of the entire production and distribution history, suppliers are able to react quickly to any issues. An effective product-traceability system helps isolate and prevent contaminated products from reaching consumers in the event of a product recall. It also helps Australian food businesses protect their brands.
Product traceability information is often required to comply with more stringent requirements from customers and regulatory agencies. Manufacturers must find innovative ways to create value, reduce risk, and ensure compliance. One innovative approach to responding to these challenges is the implementation of Traceability Systems.
