Food & Lot Traceability Software - A Must-Have

By George Nielsen, 

Lot Traceability is one of the most important features available to food businesses of any kind. In a day and age where health and health consciousness are of paramount importance, food businesses MUST reassure their customers that their product is safe and have the proof to back up that claim.

Regardless of how efficient or safe you may think your production line is, there is always going to be a looming threat of contamination. The biggest mistake food businesses make is assuming their current safety procedures and protocols are sufficient defense against the threat of an outbreak. This false sense of assurance is unfortunately how many food businesses learn the hard way that they need to install proper lot traceability software that can track every ingredient that goes into their product at every stage of the supply chain.

Without this tool, food manufacturers and businesses are leaving themselves entirely exposed, and defenseless when they encounter a contaminant within their supply chain. Having capable lot traceability means having 100% visibility into your supply chain. This level of visibility allows food businesses to isolate a particular lot within minutes or even seconds, cutting off a potential outbreak at the root. The impact of this type of functionality cannot be overstated. When it comes to the health and trust of your customer base, you cannot leave anything to chance.

Is It Necessary? 

Yes. The reputation of your entire business is at stake. The ability to trace-forwards and trace backward within your supply chain significantly improves your business’s ability to minimize the damaging effects of a product recall due to contamination. Dependable lot traceability allows businesses to immediately pick out certain batches, pallets, or crates that contain compromised products and swiftly remove them from the supply chain before they reach the end consumer. In doing so, you could potentially be saving your business countless dollars as a result of a devastating product recall.
