[Bartender] Keeping the global food supply chain safe
February 25, 2020
Food producers, processors, manufacturers and service providers face an increasingly complex set of regulations and standards for food labeling and traceability across the global food supply chain. These initiatives are driven by real concerns, both human and commercial. In the US alone, more than 128,000 people are hospitalized every year as a result of food-borne illness, according to the US Centers for Disease Control—and 3,000 of them die. 80% of small- to mid-sized businesses fail within three years of a product recall due to the loss of sales, reputation and resulting loss in market value.
A strong labeling and tracking program can address these concerns by:
- Helping organizations track and terminate epidemics of foodborne illness and guard against counterfeiting and bioterrorism;
- Helping consumers identify foods that may include allergens such as peanuts or dairy; and
- Helping companies isolate weaknesses and improve efficiencies throughout the supply chain.
