Read Frequently Asked Questions

This Food Safety system webinar will discuss how the current traceability capabilities, costs and trends will become integrated into food safety systems and explore the different approaches like Barcode, RFID, Manual systems, simple tagging etc.

Why Should You Attend:

As the government at a complete loss and incapable of identifying and requiring an approach to food traceability and safety, hundreds of approaches are currently under development by private enterprises. Government is moving to electronic food traceability requirements and hence the pressure will be on to comply at all levels in the food supply chain. When the government finally specifies a standardized electronic approach, it will be up to an army of consultants and hardware and software vendors to help implement it throughout America's food supply systems. Nation-wide and international traceability requirements will move through the entire food supply chain and include farmers, distribution centers, processors, packers, shippers, retailers and restaurants. European food traceability requirements already exceed America's implementation movements. It is also likely that Asian countries will leapfrog America's capabilities simply because they have no legacy systems to eliminate.

This webinar will explore current traceability capabilities, costs and trends and how traceability will become part of an integrated food safety system.

Areas Covered in the Seminar:

  • Barcode, RFID and manual Systems.
  • The future of cell phone technology and concepts.
  • Simple Tagging (slap and ship) as a low risk alternative vs. RFID at the high cost end.
  • On-line hosted systems vs "own your own"
  • Item vs case and pallet levels of identification.GS1 and other high cost factors.
  • ISO 22000 and 22005 - International Standards for Food Safety and Traceability
  • Impact from Asia.
  • Review of federal FDA government directions.
