Tracing capabilities
  • Building a food chain from farm to fork; start at any position in the food chain and follow ingredients / products stepwise from food producers to cases of foodborne disease outbreaks (forward tracing) and back via ingredients to primary producers. The traceability of food, feed, food-producing animals, and any other substance intended to be, or expected to be, incorporated into a food or feed shall be established at all stages of production, processing and distribution.
  • Food and feed business operators shall be able to identify any person from whom they have been supplied with a food, a feed, a food-producing animal, or any substance intended to be, or expected to be, incorporated into a food or feed. To this end, such operators shall have in place systems and procedures which allow for this information to be made available to the competent authorities on demand.
  • Food and feed business operators shall have in place systems and procedures to identify the other businesses to which their products have been supplied. This information shall be made available to the competent authorities on demand.
  • Lot characteristics: Lot number, product name, delivery, BBD
  • iTrade offers the only Traceability solutions with full supply chain trace-forward and trace-back
  • iTrade’s automated, closed-loop Ship & Trace solution provides “one step forward, one step back” traceability, enabling trading partners to communicate product attributes across the supply chain. Persisting PTI Key Data Elements (KDEs) in association with order history aids in protecting consumers in the event of potential future food safety recalls and protects your brand from associated exposure.
  • iTrade has incorporated critical workflow logic and data elements to enable comprehensive supply chain visibility with the goal of simplifying traceability to make it more efficient and cost effective for all trading partners. With iTrade’s Ship & Trace solution, all trading partners, regardless of commodity, system constraints, size and technical capabilities can automatically append PTI KDEs to POs or ASNs, including GTIN, Lot #s, COOL codes, manufacture and expiration dates, buyer and supplier item codes, logistical data, RPC data, nutritional data and pallet information. Your traceability data is linked to iTrade’s Order Management System, creating a tightly integrated system with a single source of data. After shipments are received, all PTI data is persisted throughout the payment and invoice process, allowing trading partners to perform USDA COOL audits by searching within iTrade’s Order Management System.
