Why implement case level traceability?
The Produce Traceability Initiative (PTI) Leadership Council has announced that it has agreed the fresh produce industry needs to stay on course with PTI implementations based on the use of standardized product identification with Batch or Lot Numbers, encoded in GS1-128 bar-codes on case labels for improved traceability and precise recall preparedness.
The announcement was made by the Leadership Council – which represents 32 companies in the fresh produce industry – at its semi-annual meeting last week, which took place in conjunction with FMI Connect and United Fresh 2014 in Chicago.
“The PTI Leadership Council continues to encourage companies large and small in the produce industry to follow PTI best practices,” said Mike Agostini, senior category director for produce at Wal-Mart Stores, and co-chair of the PTI Leadership Council. “In just seven months of PTI implementation at Wal-Mart, we have seen significant increases in PTI case labels on products, and we are already seeing important benefits in supply chain efficiencies resulting from our implementation.”
The Council also emphasized that industry-wide adoption of the use of Advance Ship Notice, an electronic data interchange transaction for exchanging traceability data, as well as the outbound recording of the GS1-128 bar-code data on cases of produce from distribution centers to retail stores and food service operations, are critical to ensuring that the vision of PTI is fully realized.
Case level traceability

Throughout the FarmSoft fresh produce management system, case level traceability is being maintained at all levels. Incoming fresh produce has bar codes applied, and after packing or processing is finished, labels are applied to individual cases, and pallets. The case and pallet level traceability provides real time inventory monitoring of current raw and finished fresh produce inventory levels.
Instant stock takes with case level traceability
Performing a stock take with case level traceability is instant, and real time. Using FarmSoft you can monitor stock at multiple warehouses, at an unlimited number of sites. This is especially useful if there is more than one packhouse or factory, or storage location in the business.
