The ability of food processors to track and trace the transformation from raw food received from a farm or other food source to packaged food for the restaurant, store or consumer is one of the most important steps in the food supply chain.
Using RFID and storing information in the cloud or blockchain as food is being transformed creates records in time that go beyond “one step forward, one step back.” Connecting the information in this way promotes:
- Fast, accurate recall
- Food-item provenance
- Inventory visibility
- Error-proof shipping
In the event of a recall, food processors need to know what food came from which supplier, when and how it was transformed in their facility and where it was shipped to after processing. Adding RFID labels and storing information in the cloud or blockchain as food is being transformed creates records in time that go beyond “one step forward, one step back.” For the processor, connecting the information in this way promotes the transformation of food, fast, accurate recall, inventory visibility, and error-proof shipping.
