By definition, a supply chain is an association of different stakeholders working together. In the agrifood industry, the supply chains have been evolving over the past century and have become global, industrial, and lately, highly digitalized. Even though the “eat local” trend has been spreading since a couple of years, there is no doubt that international food trade will go on and that supply chains need to work on their digitalization if they want to be efficient, resilient, and traceable.
Why is traceability so important in global supply chains ?
Consumers are demanding transparency. 60% of consumers want to know where their food comes from*. And while a local fruits or vegetable producers can provide it to them, an industrial food manufacturer, most of the time, cannot. When sourcing different ingredients from different providers, traceability is always existing, but not often leveraged as a way to create value and almost never available in real-time. Fortunately, this can change, that’s to an alliance of hardware and software technologies, already available today.
Are you an ingredient provider or a food manufacturer wondering how to bring real time-traceability to your food supply chains? Discover 3 interoperable solutions that can help your business gain efficiency, differentiate from your competitors, and reduce you traceability exercises time & costs.
