The Produce Traceability Initiative (PTI) is an industry-led effort to standardize and streamline the traceability process across the entire fresh produce supply chain.

The PTI was created by the PMA, United Fresh, and the CPMA in conjunction with leading retailers and grower shippers. It provides a framework of standards and best practices that enable whole-chain traceability.

PTI compliance guidelines require your company to have proper traceability systems in place. These systems must accurately track all products at the case level from harvest through customer shipment.

How Do I Become PTI Compliant?

PTI compliance guidelines require that each member of the supply chain tracks every case of produce that they receive and/or ship. This requires systems that accurately track all products at the case level from harvest through customer shipment.

In order to achieve standardized whole chain traceability, you must:

  • Apply a PTI label containing the GTIN, lot number, and PTI voice pick code
  • Apply hybrid pallet tags to outbound shipments
  • Track who receives what shipped product
  • Record source and pack lot information
  • Maintain electronic traceability records

This traceability information allows members of the supply chain to trace product forwards and backwards, and to isolate suspect product in the case of a recall. It also gives supply chain members the ability to quickly pass traceability information to the FDA during foodborne illness investigations.

Low Cost Labeling Compliance

Many grower-shippers are required by their customers to provide case traceability labeling. Whether you have been requested to add a case label by Walmart, Wholefoods or retailers requiring RPC labels, RedLine have developed a low cost solution to meet these requirements.
