According to IFT, there has been significant progress in the area of food traceability in recent years. Several food sectors have elevated the importance of traceability and begun to implement programs in support within their supply chains. Research has identified the beneficial relationship between effective traceability and food security, sustainability, safety, defense, and protection. From carrying out targeted recalls to preventing food waste, traceability is viewed as an essential prerequisite to better supply chain management.
