Food and beverage industries are facing mounting challenges of supply chain efficiency, food safety, authentication and regulatory compliance.

The rise in food-borne pathogens like E.Coli, Listeria and Salmonella is not only negatively impacting public health, but also eroding consumer trust.

South African authorities have responded by adding traceability as a requirement in the new hygiene regulation, R638 - Regulations governing general hygiene requirements for food premises, the transport of food and related matters.

This regulation is promulgated under the Foodstuffs, Cosmetics and Disinfectants Act, (ACT NO.54 of 1972) and is the minimum legal requirement applicable to all food premises in South Africa.

To help organisations meet regulatory requirements, improve product safety, ensure product authenticity and provenance, our team developed Traceable, a system that allows end-to-end visibility in the food supply chain.

Traceable batch tracking allows food and beverage manufacturers and distributors to keep track of raw materials and products using a lot or batch number.

Batch numbers can be assigned to manufacturing and sales orders to maintain control of food products, never lose track with batch identification and ensure product recall process.

With Traceable, food manufacturers, distributors and retailers can achieve best practice quality management and traceability from raw material intake to finished product labelling, picking and dispatch with ease.
