In the light of recent legislation and a number of food safety incidents, traceability of food products back from the consumer to the very beginning of the supply chain has never been so important. This book describes key components of traceability systems and how food manufacturers can manage them effectively. The first part of the book reviews the role of traceability systems not only in ensuring food safety but in optimizing business performance. Part 2 looks at ways of building traceability systems while Part 3 reviews key traceability technologies such as DNA markers, electronic tagging of farm animals, ways of storing and transmitting traceability data, and the range of data carrier technologies.
