produce traceability initiative labels is a system that allows tracking of produce from its point of origin (farm and packhouse/pack shed) to a retail location where it is purchased by consumers.
Produce traceability is an important link to protect public health, as it allows government agencies to more quickly and accurately identify the source of contaminated fruit or vegetables believed to be the cause of an outbreak of food-borne illness, recall and remove them from the marketplace, and communicate to the supply chain.
Since many fruits and vegetables are eaten raw, the produce industry‚ from farmer to retailer, works diligently to protect these foods from contamination. Despite their best efforts, foreign matter can occasionally contaminate produce in the field or orchard, in packing or processing, in transit or storage.
Because traceability systems can provide information on the source, location, movement and storage conditions of produce, they also allow growers, packers, processors and distributors to identify factors affecting quality and delivery.
Beginning in 2008, an industry-led effort to enhance traceability throughout the entire produce supply chain was launched as the produce traceability initiative labels.
