Simple traceability solution - software for fruit and vegetable packing
Processors and packers involved in the fresh produce industry deal with a lot of compliance and traceability issues. If the worst happens and a product recall needs to be effected immediately, they have to be able to trace where the raw ingredients of fruit and vegetables came from, what was done to them, when and where the finished products have gone.
Fresh produce processors and packers manufacturers are subject to quality audits and they can often practice recalls and food safety incidents. From a business perspective, these activities often can be expensive and cumbersome to comply with, without the use of a simple traceability solution that is integrated into the businesses fresh produce handling processes and guidelines.
As a supplier to the food manufacturing or fresh produce processing or handling and retail industry, quality control and traceability are key for any manufacturer. Farmsoft delivers solutions in Australia, USA, Canada, UK, Europe, Africa, and Asian regions. Use farmsoft to become compliant and increased efficiency.
Without a simple traceability solution:
When details are requested about a specific shipment, it was not uncommon to see people combing through reams of paper to trace the required traceability information.
To ensure compliance and to make efficiency gains, implement farmsoft to manage key critical traceability points in the fresh produce handling process: Research and Development, Document every detail, Record all changes before QA and Production, Quality Assurance, Manage new product approval, Corrective Action Reports, Lab Results, Supplier Accreditation, Renewals
Production: Handwritten production records – scanned, classified, routed to Production and QA managers for approval. Records are automatically linked to the product and batch for instant record retrieval
Other processes that can be automated: Quotes, A/P Invoice Approvals, Purchase Requests, Maintenance Requests, Document Management.
Some immediate results of implementing a simple traceability solution include: Tracking shipments, batches and ingredients could take days, with a simple, modern, cloud based traceability solution instant recalls can be produced in less than 3 seconds. Forget about legacy traceability systems that required days, hours, or event minutes to perform product recall. Management meetings have instant access to the status of Projects, Corrective Action Reports and Maintenance Requests without days of preparation.
Quality Audits are less stressful and more efficient. Fresh produce processors and handlers need to be compliant, but this does not have to affect their efficiency negatively.
