    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
