Traceability in supply chain is a key concern for governments, suppliers, retailers and consumers, especially for the food and beverage sector. Industry regulators and government agencies, such as the Global Centre for Food Traceability (GFTC) and the APEC Alliance for Supply Chain Connectivity (A2C2), have led important initiatives to develop open and interoperable data and technology solutions to protect consumer health and safety and safeguard product integrity.
The Retail and Trade Brands Advocacy (RTBA), in collaboration with The Deakin University Centre for Supply Chain and Logistics, and GS1 Australia, have developed the "Food Traceability Implementation Model – Data Sharing and Interoperability in Food Supply Chain."
In this session, RTBA and GS1 Australia representatives will present the processes and benefits of adopting the Global Data standards (GDS) – to improve visibility, traceability, risk management, responsiveness, collaboration and innovation.
Representative from Rich Harvest Agricultural Produce, a Hong Kong refresh vegetables wholesaler and manufacturer, will elaborate on the business case to use the traceability technology. GS1 Hong Kong will share more from their experience as project manager for the APEC A2C2 pilots completed in 2017 and 2018, and make recommendations for next steps.
