Improving the Safety of the Food Supply Chain: The Value of RFID and Traceability on a Growing Problem
Protecting today's food supply chain has become evermore critical - but evermore difficult due to an increasingly complex and global supply chain. Countries all around the world must determine how to monitor the food supply chain for accidental contamination and purposeful bioterrorism, as well as validate that product was handled safely from initial processing to receipt, regardless of the country of origination. Achieving this level of visibility will require the collection of a massive amount of data - including the collection of customized data for specific food verticals such as produce, seafood and cattle. RFID's powerful and flexible automated data collection capabilities make the compilation of this data set financially feasible.
