The benefits of traceability for farming cooperatives

Farming cooperatives are service providers vis-à-vis their member farms and play a key role in the collection of traceability data. They gather, pool and prepare the data so that information about origin can be passed downstream in the supply chain. As a general rule, farming cooperatives are legacy organisations whose various sites are equipped with different IT systems. Data exchange between sites leads to inefficiencies. fTRACE overcomes this challenge by standardising the traceability data and communicating it via a standard interface.
