FarmSoft track and trace is a comprehensive fresh produce business management solution that caters for all operational processes from quality control, inventory, sales, dispatch, and orders. FarmSoft even provides food manufacturing, good manufacturing management, and value adding features. FarmSoft track and trace software provides many innovative features to bring easily maintained benefits to the fresh produce processor, packer, and marketer.
Using the FarmSoft traceability code, customers, and end consumers can track and trace fresh produce simply by scanning a QR code with their smartphone. The track and trace system will then present the customer/end consumer with the traceability or marketing information as chosen by the packer. This helps to improve customer confidence and provides supply chain transparency to promote the concept of food safety.
FarmSoft track and trace also includes the ability to track goods more than one level down the supply chain. This means you can track the supplier of a supplier to provide guaranteed extensive traceability. This functionality is not traditionally found in track and trace systems.
FarmSoft track and trace can be tailored to meet specific client requirements. The FarmSoft team understands every fruit processing business is different, and adapts the solution for each client.
Fresh produce track and trace
Everything is at your fingertips at all time! Stock take, inventory levels, analysis of pack out rates, quality control, instant recall and easy auditing functionality. The track and trace philosophy is enforced by guiding users through the best traceability processes, ensuring easy compliance, and reducing the cost of transient labor training. Throughout the FarmSoft fresh produce management system, track and trace 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.
Comprehensive stock control with track and trace
Performing a stock take with track and trace is instant, and real time, and you can view and manage stock in specific sites, warehouses, and even in specific processes. You can even managed ‘estimated’ quantities of product, perform ripening, sales, dispatch, invoicing, and all other functionality required to run a contemporary fruit processing pack shed.

Capitalizing the hardware needed for ASN might best be viewed as an opportunity cost, suggests United Fresh's Vaché. One unnamed distributor upgraded to a voice-pick system in conjunction with ASN implementation. Savings from a reduction in pick errors were calculated at $500,000, an efficiency gain that will increase in importance as mixed pallet loads become more common.
We believe the next step to further identifying independent smallholders is through engagement and verification. We are communicating our sourcing policy as it relates to the legality of their land, crops, and protection of conservation areas. Suppliers who have been identified are expected to submit their data and sign a statement of compliance with our sourcing policy. We then use the data to map out the location of their estate and overlay this on the provincial spatial plan for verification.
Fresh fruit and vegetable traceability shouldn't be scary. It is a good thing that will only improve the industry. Yes, it will cost money to implement a traceability system, and yes, you may have to change some of your packaging/record keeping, but in the end, wouldn't you rather protect your brand and your product then risk a season-ending outbreak? If your competitors are using traceability labels, so should you. You don't want to take the blame for an outbreak simply because you can't prove you weren't involved.
