The transparency and traceability solution for your industry
Transparency with regard to all raw materials, products and companies involved in a supply chain is becoming an increasingly central issue for all industries. The change in society as a whole with regard to more demanding requirements in terms of quality, fairness and sustainability requires economic actors to increasingly assume responsibility. This is driving competition for best standards, which is applying pressure at all levels to increase transparency and raise standards. New statutory requirements, such as the German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act, illustrate the change on the legal level and demand verification of socially and environmentally sustainable production along the entire supply chain in the form of valid data.
The ftrace transparency and traceability solution takes into account individual statutory and industry-specific requirements to enhance efficiency and trust for all participants in the supply chain. As a general rule, any type of product can be traced with ftrace. Click here for an overview of the industries in which ftrace is already used.
Constant price pressure, saturated markets, global supply chains and feed: The meat industry not only operates in a challenging environment but is also regularly shaken by scandals. Legislators and consumers are demanding reliable information about the origin and quality of meat products. ftrace provides a future-oriented and efficient transparency and traceability solution.
Consumer demand for fish is growing steadily. However, the world’s natural resources are limited. Topics such as overfishing, the use of feed or drugs in the aquaculture industry, counterfeit products and incorrect labelling have all caused a stir in the market – and are subject to increasing legal regulation. There is no other way of dealing with this than ensuring a seamlessly traceable supply chain – from the moment the product is caught or harvested until it reaches the consumer.
The fruit and vegetable industry is complex, involving a diverse range of products that includes both regional produce and exotic fruits from overseas. A professional transparency and traceability system is essential as a guarantee that products on the market have been produced safely and sustainably.
Digitalisation is a new challenge for the dairy industry, which already suffers under the pressure of long-running price wars. Not only does the consolidation of production batches make tracing back on the batch level difficult, there is also growing demand for information about sustainability aspects such as origin, feed and animal welfare. Consequently, it is even more important to have an efficient transparency and traceability system in place. According to surveys, consumers prefer to buy milk when they know where the milk comes from and its origin is one they can trust.
Mixed batches of bulk goods is one of the greatest challenges with regard to the transparency and especially the traceability of cereals. In other words, products with beneficial features such as regionality or sustainable production methods cannot be cleanly separated from other batches. This being the case, how can you communicate quality benefits in an authoritative manner AND leverage savings as a result? This is where ftrace provides an efficient, compliant solution.
The more ingredients in a product, the greater the investment needed to ensure that the supply chain remains transparent. The multitude of industry-specific characteristics and statutory requirements make transparency and traceability of these products a particularly complex challenge.
