Freshmarx for Source Growers | Avery Dennison

Freshmarx Intelligent Food Industry Solutions for Source/Growers

Why Traceability and Transparency are Important to Growers and Producers

The ability to trace food from source to the consumer is more important than ever. Farmers and producers are being asked and, in some cases required, to provide traceability information that wasn’t previously required. Various government agencies are demanding compliance with new standards, brands need transparency in the event of a recall, and consumers are demanding data - they want to know the full story behind where their food originated and its journey through the supply chain. All of this can be achieved by creating a connected supply chain.

Freshmarx Connect

GS1 Labeling Solutions for Farms and Producers

Freshmarx Connect is a cloud-hosted first-mile solution that uses RFID technology to help farmers and producers quickly and easily achieve their transparency and traceability goals through compliance with GS1 labeling standards. Farmers and producers can quickly and easily generate serialized global trade numbers (GTINS) that are used to create GS1 compliance labels while at the same time leveraging RFID technology to create a “digital twin” or “digital identity” of the product.

This digital identity allows the product to be traced all the way through to the consumer and is the first step in creating a connected supply chain. In addition, Avery Dennison is a GS1 “Identity Provider”. That means we fully understand GS1 standards and have been granted permission from GS1, through our Freshmarx Connect solution, to help farmers and producers create digital identities for their products and help them determine the how and what is needed to create and apply GS1 compliant labels to their products.

Freshmarx Connect Addresses Key GS1 Compliance Challenges

Typically, farmers and producers face three major challenges in implementing a successful GS1 compliant labeling program: complexity, accuracy, and productivity.
