Fresh Produce Traceability Bar-code

Fresh Produce Traceability is much more than applying a label to the packed fruit or vegetable.  FarmSoft delivers strict fresh produce traceability guidelines for supply chain end to end food safety & transparency.

Ensuring that the traceability chain has no gaps in it is important to reduce the risk exposure of your business.  If there is a breach in the traceability chain, then the whole traceability enforcement system has failed and becomes a pointless expense.  FarmSoft ensures 100% accuracy of traceability throughout the entire life-cycle of fresh produce, from pre-planting, to post sales traceability guideline adherence.  FarmSoft ensures your business is not unnecessarily exposed, while minimizing compliance costs.

FarmSoft Packhouse Management software provides a strong platform for accurate recording of fresh produce traceability records, via a variety of easy and logical methods.  Risk exposure to the pack shed is greatly reduced by having resolution traceability guideline compliance, which in turn reduces financial exposure to the packhouse should a recall become necessary.  Accurate fresh produce traceability reduces the quantity of fruit/vegetables in a recall, and therefore reduces the businesses financial exposure.  High traceability helps to open new markets for fresh produce, and improves customer confidence in product quality.

Best practice standards for fresh produce traceability such as BRC, GlobalGAP, ISO, HACCP, CanGAP, EuroGAP, (and many more) are supported by FarmSoft, making compliance and audits easy and less expensive.

The FarmSoft fresh produce traceability system constitutes thousands of processes & guidelines that are integrated throughout the entire system, guiding users to record correct  fresh produce traceability details at the correct time.

FarmSoft Packhouse Management’s “Traceability” module isn’t a stand alone module.  Traceability is built into the core of FarmSoft, in every process, action, and document.  FarmSoft minimizes the data capture and entry costs associated with fresh produce traceability using various innovative techniques.

Pack sheds and packhouses are experiencing new levels of regulatory control in the pack shed and packhouse processes for fruit and vegetables. Contemporary industrialized fruit and vegetable packing has become increasingly regulated over the past decade. There are now literally hundreds of thousands of regulations world wide that relate to the Traceability and Food Safety of the production of fruit and vegetables for human consumption.

FarmSoft provides an easy to use fresh produce traceability software by integrating the worlds most common fresh produce traceability and food safety and traceability guidelines into the every day operations management.

FarmSoft Fresh Produce Traceability Software manages every facet of fresh produce traceability for  a wide range of fruit, vegetable, coffee, flower, hop, and other fresh produce packing requirements. Combine FarmSoft Packhouse software with FarmSoft Farm Management ERP to create seamless traceability from pre planting to post pack shed sales.

FarmSoft Packhouse & Pack Shed Software ensures that all fruit and vegetable (and other types of fresh produce) are labeled and traced upon arrival at the Packhouse or Pack Shed.

Fruit and vegetables can be barcoded upon delivery to the Packhouse (or labeled in the field if chosen).  The barcode will identify the fresh produce for its entire lifecycle ensuring strict adherence to traceability levels such as GlobalGAP, PTI – Produce Traceability Initiative, HACCP, ISO, BRC, FarmSafe, and more.

Fresh produce is scanned when sorted in the pack shed, this ensures Packhouse and Pack Shed managers know where all produce is at all times, and are able to view the history of the movement of fruit and vegetables to trace any potential contamination points that may occur during the pack shed or Packhouse processes.

FarmSoft Fresh Produce Traceability Software provides an extremely high level of traceability management and transparency; all the way to the individual piece of fruit if chosen. Traceability labels can be applied at many levels throughout the packing and manufacturing/value add process.

Fresh produce traceability recalls can be performed on these items:

  • Trace batch input materials and recall through supply chain to customer
  • Individual fruit/vegetable piece (based on piece label)
  • Packed finish product recall
  • Pallet recall
  • Invoice recall
  • Purchase Order (for source or batch input goods) recall
  • Suppliers Reference recall

Why use traceability sharing tools?

End consumers are 80% more likely to choose fresh produce that has an open traceability policy over product that does not have open traceability. Truth is, very few consumers will ever lookup a traceability code, however, they want to know the option is available. For your customers, instant access to quality control information can assist them in decision making processes and increases customer confidence and supply chain traceability.

How can users scan a barcode?

Its easy, they can use one of many dozens of free apps on their Apple, Android, or Blackberry phone – many users will already have these apps installed. Simply use an app like Google Goggles, Barcode Reader, Shop Savvy etc. Once the barcode is read the information relating to the fresh produce is automatically shown to the user via a web page. For example, try scanning the barcode below:
