How farming cooperatives benefit from traceability

Farming cooperatives are service providers for their affiliated farms and play a key role in the gathering of transparency and traceability data. They gather, pool and prepare origin and certificate data and make them available to downstream stages of the supply chain. Farming cooperatives are typically legacy organisations – each location has its own IT system. Data exchange between them is therefore often inefficient. By standardising traceability data and the communicating it via  a standard interface, ftrace provides for transparent information and trust-based collaboration at all times.
