By Ian Smith, Anthony Furness

Within the gentle of modern laws and a couple of meals defense incidents, traceability of nutrition items again from the patron to the very starting of the provision chain hasn't ever been so very important. This publication describes key parts of traceability platforms and the way nutrients brands can deal with them successfully. the 1st a part of the ebook studies the position of traceability platforms not just in making sure foodstuff protection yet in optimising company functionality. half seems to be at methods of creating traceability structures when half 3 experiences key traceability applied sciences akin to DNA markers, digital tagging of livestock, methods of storing and transmitting traceability facts and the variety of knowledge provider applied sciences.

Alternatives to Pesticides in Stored-Product IPM

Bugs linked to uncooked grain and processed nutrients reason qualitative and quantitative losses. combating those losses attributable to stored-product bugs is key from the farmer's box to the consumer's desk. whereas conventional insecticides play an important function in stored-product built-in pest administration (IPM), there has lately been, and may stay, a better emphasis on replacement ways.

As a consequence, dioxin, in non-harmful doses, has been identified in many products. In spite of the increasing quality standards, safety measures and traceability requirements, this kind of incident keeps appearing. Apparently, the overview of a production chain is limited and the number of unknown factors is too large to allow all possible risks to be taken into account. Therefore, due to increased detection thresholds and reduced tolerance, the number of detectable incidents increases. A second development is that products are innovated.

Historically, the needs for safety, minimisation of liability and optimisation of logistics have been the motivators © 2006, Woodhead Publishing Limited. Using traceability systems to optimise business performance 33 for developing and refining traceability concepts. Main motivators to implement traceability in food chains are protection against the impact of food safety incidents and traceability as license to deliver. It is important to consider that the traceability of food products is just one development in the food sector.

Consequently, traceability can be implemented as a separate business function, but it can also be part of ERP, logistic, commercial or quality management solutions. 5 The FoodPrint model for developing traceability systems With value traceability, traceability becomes a tool to realise business goals. This requires an approach to designing traceability systems that takes these business goals as the starting point. FoodPrint is such a systematic approach for designing tracking and tracing systems.
