The Produce Traceability Initiative (PTI) outlines 7 milestones to implementing case-level electronic traceability in the produce industry. Implement PTI requirements within your company, If you’re just getting started with PTI implementation, read on for more information and assistance implementing a simple PTI solution for traceability.
The Produce Traceability Initiative is a voluntary, industry-wide effort designed to help the industry maximize the effectiveness of current track and trace procedures, while developing a standardized industry approach to enhance the speed and efficiency of traceability systems for the future. Industry participantscover every segment of the produce supply chain. The PTI is an industry-led, supply chain-wide Initiative governed by a 34-member Leadership Council. The work is carried out by volunteer-led working groups in the areas of Implementation, Master Data, Technology, and Communications and is administered by Canadian Produce Marketing Association (CPMA), GS1 US, Produce Marketing Association (PMA) and United Fresh Produce Association (UFPA)
Are you waiting for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to finalize traceability regulations to implement the Food Safety Modernization Act before you begin implementing the Produce Traceability Initiative? That may put you behind the curve. Michael Taylor, FDA Deputy Commissioner for Foods, recently told the PTI Leadership Council, “we know we are going to need to build on and embrace the work that industry has done.” When informed that some industry members are delaying implementing the PTI until FDA regulations are finalized, Taylor discouraged that notion, responding, “When real progress is being made, we encourage that and don’t want our process to be an obstacle.” In other words: Don’t wait, begin implementing the PTI now.
The produce industry handles an estimated 6 billion cases of produce in the United States each year. However, industry leaders have recognized that a more systematic, industry-wide approach would enhance overall supply chain traceability in speed and efficiency. The use of standards in the supply chain across the industry will significantly enhance the ability to narrow the impact of potential recalls or similar problems, protecting both consumers and industry members.
The produce industry is committed to food safety – the health and confidence of our customers is at stake. Enhancing our industry’s current traceability capability to achieve whole chain, electronic recordkeeping will allow government and industry to work better together to remove suspect product from the marketplace, while limiting the scope and cost of recalls to our industry. That vision necessitates the ability to trace product through the supply chain, from the field forward.
The U.S. Bioterrorism Act of 2002 requires that every handler of food products keep records documenting movement of its products both one step forward and one step back – that is, to document where the product was sourced, and where it was shipped. These records allow product to be traced throughout the supply chain today, but we recognize that the current system isn’t perfect and we are working to improve it.
What is the produce industry doing to improve produce traceability?
Current traceability systems are generally effective for tracing product within a specific company’s operations – that’s known as internal traceability – and the industry’s major trade associations have been working to enhance that capability by identifying and disseminating best practices for many years. The Produce Traceability Initiative (PTI) builds on that current capability by establishing a common framework and nomenclature for product identification, to provide streamlined connectivity across the supply chain. The PTI is facilitated by industry leaders, and staffed by industry and association volunteers.
