Date Added: Nov 2009

The Manitoba government needed to enable food tracing from point of origin through to point of consumption. A proof-of-concept was developed with help from IBM that lays the foundation for the monitoring and aggregation of information from across the supply chain. This provides the means for complete, end-to-end documentation of the history and background of food products as they are produced; enables faster response to food contamination outbreaks; enhances the market value of agricultural products.
