Consumer, commercial and regulatory concerns require an effective track and trace system for all food products. On April 28, David Miller, President, Operations Technologies, will present an overview of the requirements and solutions for food packaging traceability.
Supply chain traceability links the physical flow of products with the flow of information about them. All items must be uniquely identified and the information made available to all supply chain partners. Successful traceability depends on the design and production of packaging coupled with effective data collection and reporting systems. Mr. Miller will discuss:
- Industry standards such as GS1 Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) and mpXML
- Impact of new regulations including the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)
- Technology overview
- Data collection
- Data management and exchange including internet based systems
- Operational implications and capital and operating costs including consumables
Mr. Miller will present “The Impact of New Regulations and Standards on Packaging Traceability” on Thursday, April 28 at 11AM Pacific, 2PM Eastern time. Register at: http://www.nwasoft.com/PACKwebinar2.htm .
