FarmSoft GS1 traceability system does much more than just print labels! Manage your inventory, maintain traceability, pack, process, and store fresh produce. Perform sales and dispatch and invoicing. Reduce fresh produce waste.

FarmSoft’s GS1 traceability solution gives you easy access to fresh produce labels for all traceability requirements. Use the built in labels for GS1 traceability with Aldi, Tesco, Walmart, Woolworths, Coles, Pick’n’Save, Loblaw and other defacto traceability standards.

The FarmSoft GS1 traceability solution can manage fresh produce from delivery, short and long term storage, washing, packing, processing, and even full food manufacturing and value adding processes. To complement these features, FarmSoft GS1 traceability solution also manages sales orders, sales contracts, export documentation, dispatch, shipping containers, and invoice preparation. Talk to a FarmSoft consultant today to find out how GS1 traceability can be implemented in your packhouse to increase traceability and at the same time, reduce waste through better fresh produce handling procedures.

Here are three examples of GS1 traceability data that may be shared in the fresh produce supply chain:

Master data
Data which is permanent or relatively constant over time and provides descriptive attributes of products, parties and physical locations (e.g. name of company, contact details, address)

Transaction data
Data created during the real-world flow of products, captured when events such as loading or unloading occur in trade transactions or a business process in a business arrangement (e.g. time of production, best before date)

Visibility event data
Data detailing physical activity of products and other assets answering the “What, When, Where and Why” at real-time (e.g. temperature log)

The GS1 Traceability Standard sets the minimum traceability requirements for fresh produce handling processes to achieve maximum supply chain traceability, independent of any technology. It is a meta-standard composed of other GS1 standards – such as barcodes, EPCIS and eCom.
The GS1 Traceability standard builds a framework for end-to-end supply chain traceability systems in the fresh produce industry. The system connects information to physical products enabling all parties to perform traceability both up and down the supply chain in the event of a fresh produce or food recall.

The GS1 Global Traceability Standard is the basis of the GS1 Global Traceability Checklist, a document used to conduct gap analysis for critical points in traceability systems. Companies can verify the quality and integrity of their existing traceability processes using this Checklist or consult our traceability experts for an assessment.

Combine both FarmSoft Farm Software AND FarmSoft GS1 Fruit Packing Software to create a complete GS1 traceability solution.
