What is it
TRACEABILITY arises as a result of several food crises with the need to be able to locate the origin of food and animal feed, so that the collection, manufacture, packaging and logistics of the same can be monitored throughout the food chain from the producer or manufacturer, to the final consumer.
At the same time, consumers demand more information about the foods they buy and consume: where do they come from?, have they been manufactured or obtained in adequate and hygienic conditions? Do they contain any allergens? come from genetically modified material? How are they preserved? This fact has led manufacturers to collect a lot of information on the raw materials they use and their origin, as well as data related to the manufacturing process so that they are available to consumers and other actors involved in the process, such as customers, national and international health authorities, certification bodies, consumer associations, etc.
From here comes the "Field to Table Principle", which consists in establishing the necessary procedures that allow knowing the history, location and trajectory of a batch of products along the supply chain, from the producer primary, through the manufacturer and logistics operators, to reach the point of sale.
To ensure traceability, it is essential to identify the raw materials, intermediate and final products and packaging throughout the entire process, as well as the grouping of the products into homogeneous "lots".
Traceability is a mandatory legal requirement:
