Freshmarx for Source Growers | Avery Dennison

Freshmarx Intelligent Food Industry Solutions for Source/Growers

Traceability and a connected supply chain begin at the grower or other food sources.

In today's food supply chain environment, brands and suppliers are constantly looking for solutions to ensure food traceability and transparency to enable and ensure:

  • Food safety
  • Fast, accurate recall
  • Error-proof shipping 
  • Compliance with sustainability goals 
  • Provenance information for consumers

Automated data capture and supply chain traceability starts by creating and applying a serialized 2D barcode with a globally unique identifier and/or RFID label at the point of packing.  The information contained on the label is scanned into a distributed storage system such as blockchain, client-server or cloud-based system. This data usually consists of product information, grower information, event time/date (such as when lettuce is picked) and the lot number.  

Using a distributed storage system to record item and case labeling information enables transparency to all supply chain partners and the consumer, no matter how the food is transformed along the way.  Item tracking with information such as lot, location, aggregate item to cases and cases to a pallet helps enable accurate recall, supply chain visibility and provenance transparency for consumers. These labels can be created on-demand or can be pre-printed and applied when needed.

Avery Dennison helps enable traceability and transparency by assessing supply chain needs and working with foodservice providers to determine the optimal mix of solutions that are right for their business.
