COMPLETE TRACEABILITY OF FOOD PRODUCTS FROM FARM TO FORK

In order to mitigate and prevent foodborne illnesses, the food and beverage industry has to go beyond modernizing systems for food recalls, market withdrawals and safety alerts. The industry must transform to provide real-time, end-to-end visibility of entire supply chains in order to safeguard the public.

And the imperative is now. Upcoming legislation, including the US FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) that goes into effect on January 6, 2025, means F&B businesses will need to comply with new traceability rules to prove compliance and successfully undergo third-party audits.

ACHIEVE COMPLETE COMPLIANCE WITH THE FDA’S FSMA – SECTION 204 RULE

By November 2022, the US FDA’s Food and Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) proposed rule to achieve farm-to-fork traceability in the food system will come into effect. Under Section 204 of the FSMA, high-risk foods named in the Food Traceability List (FTL)—either as complete food products or as ingredients that make up other products—will be subject to enhanced traceability requirements.

Are your food products part of the FTL? OPTEL’s experts can help you plan and deploy your compliance process using Optchain.
